from Baker University, Kansas, ifi

shall remain a freshman. 


This year, we perceive upon further 
contemplation, something exiting will 
pep up the campus. A sour-faceu 
gentleman in an undertaker's suit 
is peeking in the key-hole of the 
Old Chapel seminar room. Behind 
him is a flock of little hen-peeked 
men also in undertaker's suits. The 
gentleman at the key-hole has a 
large magnifying glass and powdeis 
all door-knobs with fingerprint pow- 
der regardless. We sneak up behiiui 
him him and hear inside the room. 

"Workers of The World, Unite'.::: 
CeSSes the Revolution Ye \ ill be Eat- 
ink Stromherries Mit Cream . . ." 

Suddenly this gentleman blows a 
whistle and he and his stooges rush 
in. The Dies Investigating Commit- 
tee has begun its investigation by 
raiding the local State College chap- 1 
ter of the A. S. U. !!!! Said chap- 
ter being accused of waving little , 
pink flags and yelling "Workers oi 
the World. Unite" 

Very soon the Dies Investigating 
Committee Will investigate Doc Tor 
rev for stating in divers lecture.-, that 

he, as a student of Hindu foolosophy, 

is opposed to dear Democracy and is 
rooting for that horrid Aristocracy, 
all of which is demoralizing to the 
beloved United States. They will sub- 
sequently accuse our mutually-likt i 
Mr. Basil Wood of being a dictator 
in ye olde Goodell Libe. Also, very 

toon, they will troop into the Mem 

Building and accuse the Music De- 
partment of lack of patriotism for 
singing German songs in conceits. 

Mr. Dies, we predict, will have a 
lot of fun on campus, and the hon- 
orable Collegian will have something 
to editorialize about besides the 
Honor System.

Springfield College recently received a k'H °i u <wie «>t the 
most complete libraries' on physical education in the world." A 
retired professor donated his library to the college. The collection 
includes 270 feet of literature, hooks and pamphlets on subjects 
relating- to physical education. 

This library should certainly help a college team win its 
football games unless all the "All-Americans" have been called 
back to flight in the European war. 

* * * 

Speaking of football reminds us of a conversation which is 
reported to have geen overheard on campus last Thursday. 

"Well, if it isn't Jim Hoard! How are you, Jim'.' What brings 
you back on campus so early'.'" asked the returned junior, who 
came back a week before college opened to clean his room at 
the fraternity and look over the freshman stuff. 

Jim replied, "I'm line! Have a pleasant summer? What di<l 
you do blah . . . blah . . . blah . . ." 

"You still haven't told me why you're back early!" said the 

"I came hack to practice. I'm on the team, lirst 
string, too!" came Jim's reply as his 203 pounds and six 
feel four through its shoulders hack wide evident pride. 

"What? I didn't know you played football!" was the Junior's 

"Football? Who said anything about football! I taste milk, 
butter, cheese, and ice cream at the Dairy Products Judging

Yale University must feel that welcoming fresh- 
men is equally as important as graduating seniors. 

Saturday at nine, when the class of 1943 is assembled for 
the lirst time, it will see the oflicers of the university and the 
faculty gowned in academic robes march onto the platform with 
the dignity heretofore thought to be fitting only for graduation 
on similar occasions.

Finally, we prognosticate that this 
year at this State College wiil go 
down in history just as other years 
have — according to old established 
tradition. The freshmen will trim the 
trousers off the sophomores at Kazoo 
Night. The sophomores will storm 
the Abbey. The juniors will look for- 
ward to spending another two delight- 
ful semesters in Pat's English. And 
the hardened seniors will look for- 
ward to Commencement exercises 
when a promising speaker from their 
class will repeat that:

of an A-S-S."

This year for the first time in more 
, ears than we like to mention Stato 
College is coming up with a footbad 
team that boasts players with rep 
nations. P.enny Freitas, Ralph Sim- 
Pi.ns, Buddy Evans, and Carl Wern.e 
have the whole college talking ab./it 
them. Before these men put on thci: 
uniforms a week ago, Monday, it was 
expected that they would be the out- 
-tanding members of this year's grid 
edition and so far with the exception 
of Werme, who is out with a chipped, they have been. Although Cap 
tain Blasko and a few others have 
1 Miked very good. 

These reputation players are in 
for a lot of trouble this season 
because the followers of the Ma- 
room will expect too much from 
them. Buddy Evans will be ex- 
pected to gain every time he car- 
ries the ball whether the inter- 
ference clears a spot of daylight 
for him or not. Simmons will 
be expected to mow down the 
left side of the opponent's line 
and go on to take a few assorted 
backs, while Freitas has been 
confused in the campus mind with 
Barry Wood and will be expected 
to complete all his passes. 
We must remember that although 
these men are good, they can't be 
U good as some of us think they are, 
and we should allow for mistakes.

To expect sixty minutes of fault- 
[eas play nine Saturdays in a row 
is too much to ask from any man no 
matter how good his reputation. It 
would be best it the student body 
looked upon the club as a unit and 
forgot reputations, expecting fight 
but not planning on miracles. 

With 27 candidates reporting for 
soccer practice last Monday, Co4lch 
Larry Hriggs reports prospects of .1 
"fair to middlin' " season. In spite of 
the loss of seven letterinen througi 
graduation, including such depend- 
able! as Lymans, Rodda, and Cain, 
the return of five lettermen and a 
wealth of sophomore matei ; I will in- 
sure a fair team. 

Scoring Punch 
The team faces its firs* opponent in 
Rensselaer I'olvtechnical Institute 

When Arthur Sampson, Boston 
Herald football expert. visited 
campus last week to look over the 
1939 Caraway edition he wrote a 
long yarn in his pulply singing the 
praises of Ralph Simmons, guard 
candidate who transferred here in 
'3H from Clemson College. Samp- 
son left the reader with the idea 
that Simmons would he lucky to 
play this year as the faculty was 
waiving an exam over his head. 
Mr. Sampson, and perhaps a few 
local followers, might he pleased 
to learn that Simmons hurdled the 
exam Monday and is now a certain 
starter this fall.

The smiles you sir Coaches Cara

are not the result of any drop in th< 
strength of State's opponents but the 
result of an increase in power ami 
ability of the State club that should 
carry it to a fairly successful sea- 

Howdoin Rest 
Outstanding team to face the 
Statesmen this year should be the j 
Bowdoin Polar Bears of Adam Walsh, i 
When the Maroon took a large score 
beating from Bowdoin last year at 
Brunswick, Walsh showed talent ihree j 
deep in almost every position and most; 
of that talent is back this year. Al j 
Chapman, a transfer student from 
Georgetown, is a sure thing bet for 
one of the Polar Bear halfback posts 
and also a sure thing as one of the 
best backs of New England this year. 
Mr. Chapman and his playmates 
should cause the Maroon more trouble 
than it can handle and is probably 
the only team State will face without 
a real chance of victory. 

The gridders open with Springfield 

under lights a week from Friday 
and will have a tough battle on th<it 
hands. The physical education major, 
from the city of homes battled Am- 
herst to a 0-6 tie last season and will 
have most of last year's team back. 
State should rate even with newly 
named University of Connecticut, amt 
may have an edge on Rhode Island 
State. Worcester Tech still has For- 
key so W.P.I, is still good ami the 
Statesmen will have to fight for a

Twenty students will be allowed to 
take the course in hotel stewarding, 
according to a change in enrollment 

restrictions announced recently by 
Director Verbeck. 

This change lifts the course from 
Its experimental status of last year 
when only 10 students were admitted. 
The new limit is made necessary be- 
cause of limited laboratory facilities 

for this specialized training. 

Students training for hotel steward- 
ing will be placed on probation for 
the first semester and only those qual- 
ifying will be allowed to complete 

the course. 

All students will also be required 

to undergo a four months placement 

training period In actual hotel work 
between the first and second yean 
if their schooling.

either method is a plan to keep us 
out of war? The crux of the whole 
matter is the choice of means. I am 
convinced that the predominating 
opinion is this country, among gov- 
ernment officials and private citizens, 
is for peace. The question is: How 
"an we avoid becoming involved and 
at the same time keep up our for 
eigir trade'.' My personal opinion is 
based on historical fact, is that em- 
bargoes are hard to maintain. Then, 
too, there is the question of contra- 
band. Practically everything has been 
placed on the contraband list by the 
belligerents and subject to capture on 
the high seas. It must be remembered 
that in the last war opinion in the ; 
I'. S. was highly incensed over the 
handling by the British of the con- 
traband question. It all boils down 
to this, it seems to me: Whatever 
type of neutrality law we might 
adopt, it is certain that our ships or 

our commodities — our whole foreign 
commerce — are bound to be inter- 
fered with. We'll either have to shut 
down tight on all foreign commeri j 
or irrsist on our right to "The free- 
dom of the seas," backing up the la t 
ter with our whole armed force. Thi 
incidentally, need not involve us in 
war. The whole thing, however - , ts 
dangerous. The solution of this prob- 
lem will call for the best efforts of 
our administration.

Amherst can't have another unde-

as well be State's job to pin a defeat

it looks as though the Soldiers of the

Aiming to establish the Military 
Ball as a major dance for the whole

and ready for use. 

Professor Hicks also makes a plea 
to the students using the courts to 
wear only regulation tennis shoes. 
The dirt surface courts are easily 
damaged, and will make a poor play- 
ing surface if this suggestion is ig- 
nored, he pointed out. It was fur- 
ther suggested that if the last party 
to use the court in the evening will

Apple-polishers haven't a chance 
with the half dozen new instructors 
on campus! You students at State 
College have the huskiest singing 
equipment from coast to coast in 
proportion to your size! The coeds 
are "ordinary"! The undergraduates 
seem to spend all their time pitching 
woo, dancing, and not doing anything 
in particular! 

These and many other facts have 
hen unearthed in spite of cenorship 
from London, Berlin, and the Dean's 
office. Your campus correspondent 
again scoops the journalistic field with 
the inside dope from and about the 
recently appointed instructors. 
First Impressions 
"I had a bad impression of the 
State students before I came here 

to instruct," revealed (name 

withheld by request). "A year ago a 
student confided to me that: 'We of 
Ahmust, de-test those vile creatures 
in that insti-TU-tion noarth of heah. 
They are remnants of the dinosauric 
age when likewise vile things roam- 
ed these hills' I expected the worse 
but after a week here," he continued, 
"I find that they are average stu- 
dents. In fact, they are little differ- 
ent from Amherst students." 
Musical College 
Another of the neophyte instruc- 
tors was overwhelmed by the volume 
of singing going on day and night. 
The glee clubs and choir exercise 
their vocal cords afternoons and eve- 
nings. And besides the various quar- 
tets and interfraternity sings, the 
astounded instructor was still more 
astounded to find that fraternity boys 
and sorority sophisticates hold jam 

sessions nightly instead of burning 
the midnight oil or the candle at both 

Illustrating the musical tendency, 
the Instructor in question demonstrat- 
ed with the following popular fra- 
ternity song, sung to the tune of 
Clementine" : — (censored ! | ) 

"The freshmen are wilder this year 
than I ever saw in any college," 
was the main point brought out in 
another interview. If they aren't 
feuding with the Amherst boys, they 
have Innumerable dates with typi- 
cal coeds called 'Cornstalk Annie.' 
The next morning these freshmen 
come into the laboratory, forget to 
take off a pinch-cock, and— so I hear 
—blow apparatus to smithereens. 
The freshmen spend too much time 
over their books— (tutting them un-

experience. A week with the fresh- 
nun has been a revelation." 

Absorption of Knowledge 

Among other points <>f discussion, 
the secret of passing exams was mull- 
ed over. Unanimously, the Instruc- 
tors agreed that you can't learn any 
subject by dreaming about it or hy 
absorbing it thru the skin. 

As a body, they are confused; for 
the students' faces are as blank as 
the walls behind them. 

still another Instructor told of an 
interesting experience which occurred 
over the week-end. 

"As I was hurrying down town 
to catch a train, I stopped and picked 
ii|i a maroon cap, apparently dropped 
by a freshman. Before I could say 
a word, some upperclassman took me 
by the elbow and told me to get in 
with group No. 6 and to quit lag- 
ging behind. Bless DM I I was rushed, 
literally and figuratively, through 
about five fraternities and in each 
of them I heard the slickest sales- 
talk which I couldn't help resisting. 
Of course I was in a dilemna. No, 
it isn't that I missed my train. /

"What about the coeds," we asked 
'continuing our investigation of the 
newcomers and their ideas. 

The replies shot back at us were 
unique. One thought that the aver- 
age coed was a horrible cross between 
the Collrf/inn's Suzy Coed and (\,1

Miss Henachel, Bob Sheldon and

Date Makers 

A cruside for the forgotten man 
and the forgotten woman in the

hates for any and all occasions 
will be supplied by the date bureau 
for a small fee. Miss Henschel and 
the other two partners have felt for 
a long time that a large portion of 
the undergraduate body at State 
College are missing a great amount, 
of fun and pleasure during their 
College days not because of finances 
or any lack of personal charm, hut 
simply because they are too shy and 
self-conscious to take the necessary 
steps toward acquaintance. The I (ate 
Makers intend to shoulder the re- 
sponsibility of seeing that this condi- 
tion is to some degree alleviated. 
Csual Methods 
The methods to be user) by the 
Date Makers are the same as those 
used all over the country by organ- 
izations of a similar type. The person 
(male or female) who wants a date 
should merely notify the I late Makers 
that he wants a date for a certain 
time and should then fill out a blank

We understand that there is to be 
a date bureau established on our 
campus. A date bureau is nothing 
new. Collages, universities, and A.l 
C. have had date o u r e a u s. 
Some date-receiving houses have 
succeeded and others have failed. Ifc'a 
not an easy matter to play match- 
maker or Cupid. 

We doubt very much if the 
men behind the planned dale 
bureau realize the amount of 
work and worry that has to be 
done before they are actually 
ready to hang out their shingle 
advertising "Date Bureau. Sat- 
isfaction guaranteed or your 
money back. Special rates on 
week-end*." It takes a great 
deal of planning and research 
before one can set up a thriving 
business. No date can be suc- 
cessful without making these 
necessary preparations:

With a new greenhouse on ths 
Campus completed during the summer 
vvith a few improvements of oldei 
buildings, and with the Campus re- 
asonably well cared for, it would 
appear that as far as the physical 
needs of the College are concerned, 
We are making normal progress. Fur- 
thermore, with the promise of two 
new dormitiories on the Campus with- 
in the next year or two, there is 
indication that more of our physical 
needs will be met. 

However, it seems in place to have 
the student body of tha College under- 
stand that we are facing an unusually 
difficult financial situation resulting 
from the economy program put into 
effect by action of the State Legis- 
lature. With increasing demands for 
services on the part of the people 
and with a tax burden which has 
become increasingly difficult to bear, 
the Administration at the College ap- 
preciates fully the necessity for econ- 
omy and is more than ready to meet

Administration. However, with a re 
'•ord atendance of students in the 
undergraduate division and with in 
creased demands for service by the 
College to various agricultural group.-. 
in the State, a cut of &% in appro- 
priation is making it very difficult 
for the College to carry its work in 
an entirely satisfactory way. The 
fiscal year of the State is such that 



tlie College, as well as other Sta'.e 
Departments, must operate for front 
four to six months without knowing 
just what the appropriation for the 
year is to be. This means that when 
a cut is made, the amount of the cut 
must be asorbed in from five to seven 
months. This increases the difficulty 
of the problem. When it is understood 
that we must absorb a cut of between 
$28,000 and $29,(100 in approximately 
five months, it will be easier to 
understand why economies mu.-t be 
made in every college activity. 

The student body of the College i:- 
keenly interested in its welfare am:

know the situation and to appreciate

The Campus may, during the coming; 
months, show lack of care; fewe: 
books may be purchased for the Lie 
rary. Where a member of the teach- | 
ing staff resgins, his position may 
not be filled immediately. This is 
not an easy program for the Admin- 
istration to carry out, but I am con 

fident that as the situation is known 
there will be sympathetic acceptance 
of necessary economies and the fulle.-' 
possible cooperation from student 
body and staff in helping the Admin 
istration to live within its budget. 


be shown by the war between freshmen that is now going on 
between the loweirlassmen of both State and Amherst College.;. 
During the last week pea-greens from State have raided the 
Amherst College library to capture Amherst freshmen hats 
while the I ord Jeff frosh have raided Thatcher Hall for State 
hats. Perhaps, this matter of taking another freshman's hat 
is Just harmless fun but both the Amherst and State frosh ha,e| 
carried the game too far. Three nights ago three persons, yet i 
unidentified, picked up two Jeff freshmen on the Hamp corner 
and carried them down to the State campus, badly beat them, 
and threw one of them into the pond. One of the frosh who 
received a beating did not leave the Amherst infirmary until 
yesterday and is still far from being a perfect physical specimen. ' 
The blame for this poor conduct does not belong entirely 
to either body of freshmen as the Amherst students have, 
matched or surpassed every prank of the State group. We are 
not trying to pin the blame on any certain group, but we do 
ask that the freshmen students in both colleges grow up. The 
relations between Amherst and State are very friendly, and such 
raids as the frosh are carrying on now could strain these re- 

about the birds and the bees by wine 
one has done about it.

freshmen logic that Amherst students are "a bunch of willies" 
is not very well borne out by the football scores of the last three 
years or, for that matter, by any criterion that we could use. 

We realize, of course, that it is only a small body of fresh- 
i en in each college that are making the trouble, but the im- 
pression given is of an open war between the local frosh. Such 
an impression will not help the students of either college and 
may lead to serious consequences. The student Senate has al- 
ready taken steps to see that the feud is stopped and every 
level-headed freshman and upperclassman should discourage this 
stupid rivalry. 

Today's Amhersl Student follows the same general line of 
reasoning and warns Amherst freshmen: "Everyone concerned 
should make a definite effort to stop any hostile actions on their 
part or on the part of others. If the freshmen are laboring under 
the belief that they are playing the part of "college boys", they 
should be speedily disillusioned. A plea for respect of the 
amenities of life does not seem unreasonable. In ;i world in which 
barbarism is making a desperate challenge, there is little need 

to be delil erately uncivilised,"

cert campaign will get underway 

at S p.m. on Sunday, October 1, at 
the Lord Jelfery when all officers 
ami workers will gather to hear Ron- 
ald Marsiiia, promising young tenor. 
This unusual opportunity is an 
unique method of starting the Com- 
munity Concert campaign and should 
provide a treat for music lovers who 
are working in the campaign during 
the first week in October, 


Ronald Marsiiia was completing a 

pre medical course at Ohio State 
University when it was discovered 

that he possessed a spectacular tenor 
voice. He was born in Freedom, 
Pennsylvania. Although In- is of Ital- 
ian descent, he has no musical heri- 
tage ami is the first of his family to 
manifest talent in this direction. 
While he Attended Ohio State, the 
Marsilias lived in Salem, Ohio, and 
<luring his vacations the student 
worked on a variety of jobs to get 
money to alignment his general ed- 
ucation with vocal training. 

After he had definitely resolved to 
folow a vocal career, Ronald Marsilm 
Went to Cleveland, where he studied 
with Nevada van iler Veer at the 
Cleveland Institute of Music. 

While he was in this city Marsiiia 
was soloist at the Church of the Cove- 
nant, and made numerous public ap- 
pearances. He sang in concert and 
open presented by the Institute, in- 
cluding an appearance in the tenor 
lead in "Gianni Schicchi" ami as 
Prince Charming in the opera "The 
Sleeping Reality" by John Frskine 
and Beryl Rubinstein. Marsiiia took 
the role of The Singer in the per- 
formance of "Per Rosenkavalier" 
produced by the Cleveland Orchestia. 

His broadcasting activities includ 
ed appearances over WTAM and

No, we haven't any records to re-

two. N'ow that our previous com-

great unknown of post-graduation, 
we'll try to carry on without too 
much ado. 

Our music room is expanding — all 
the records are catalogued ... the

people have questioned whether we 
shall ever get back the old site, or at

quarters . . . 

All you callow froth, come to the 
music room, northeast corner of the

volumes of music, of which any part 
may be heard on a good machine for

Another organization that 
you frosh might be interested 
in is the Music Record Club, 
which you can obtain infor-

room. For a comparatively- 
very small payment you may- 
have the use of all the records 
owned by the club, on your 
own machine. 

Now for a litle warning, perhaps. 
It can't be denied that anyone who 
has ever listened to any music, of 
any kind whatever, prefers one type 
of piece to another. And the same 
statement holds for any reviewer. 
This must necesarily bias his views 
to some extent, unless he goes out of 
his way to avoid it — and how many 
do that. Well, even though it means 
a little more mental effort, and a bit 
of suppression of the ego, we shall 
try our darn lest to be fair, and 
report on intei pre.ation only, if that 
happens to be what we are doing in 
relation to a certain selection. We're 
not promising anything, just pledg- 
ing on ..elves to try to be fair, with 
a minimum of prejudice — for which 
pledge we pat ou .selves slightly: it 
took a bit of fortitude to make it. 
It may sound somewhat silly, like 
. . . "Which do you like better, Moon 
Mullins or Lil Abner?" . . . but we 
happen to like certain composers bet- 
ter than others, or they are our 
"favorites." Knowing that tastes dif- 
fer, we invite anyone that wants one 
to a skirmish involving preferences.

pieces from a given group of

Sophomoronic Suzy, Campus Coed, Returns To 
Warn Freshmen Against, Of All Things, Men 

Sophomoronic Suzy, Miss Suzy 
Coed '42 to you, is back again — full 
of grandmotherly instincts this time 
— so she has decided to advise the 
freshmen coeds. She thinks the new 
coeds ought to know all about the 
typical male of the class of '43, so 
she has written them an open letter, 
"hear, dear freshmen coeds: 

"T am Suzy Coed, a campus insti- 
tution and by the grace of God and 
the faculty a social sophomore. My 
advanced scholastic standing weighs 
heavily and I feel obliged to Tell All 
about freshmen men, to warn you, 
as it were, what you are in for. 

"They all lie. They tell you they 
love you the first date and five min- 
utes later swear there's no such thing 
as love. They make love to you all 
evening, then get up and stretch and 
say "Gee I'm hungry. Got any choc- 
olate cake?" 

"If you act Indifferent you are 
fickle and unfaithful and are com- 
pared to a devastating hunk of ice. 
If they ignore you, they're just busy. 

"They tell you — over vacations — 
that "Absence Makes the Heart 
Grow Ponder." Sure, for somebody 

"They think they are all like the 
man who, when asked "What do you 
do when a girl faints?", said, "I 
stop kissing her." 

"They don't see why you can't be- 
lieve their line, when their room- 
mate said the same thing the night 

"If the odor of gardenias makes 
you ill, you are classified as a gold- 

"You swear you're off them for 
life, then they get a military uni- 
form and you weaken. 

"They tell you they despise make- 
up, and then take out an oomph 
girl with three inches of lipstick. 

"They say, "do you think I should 
shave?" when they look almost as 
if they're subbing for Gerge Bernard 
Shaw. And they believe that dignity 
can he preserved in alcohol. 

"You just can't live with them, 
but the sad fact of the matter is 
that you can't live without them 
either. Hut that's beside the point, 
so take it easy, Freshman gals! 
Lots of love, 

Suzy Coed. 

"Important I\ S.: Cpperclassmen 
are different!" 

According to a letter recently re- 
ceived by the Collegian from a fresh- 
man, State students still have a 
defeatist attitude in regard to their 
athletic teams. Although evidently 
too greatly impressed by a pre-sea- 
son rally at which an overamount 

!of enthusiasm could not reasonably 
be expected, the frosh presented sev- 
eral interesting points which might 

I well be food for thought. He said : 

"A general note of defeatism in 

almost all who participated in the 

i meeting on the platform side dulled 

j the spirit of the freshmen The 
emphasis Coach Caraway and Cap- 
tain Rlasko put on the lack of stu- 
dent support of our teams, and Mr. 
Alviani's introduction of the Victory 
Song as one "we might sing — I hope" 

i are important evidences of this de- 
featist spirit. What's more, this de- 
featism is not confined to those who 
took part in the rally. The rest ot 
the student body seems to have it, 
too. For example, several upper- 
classmen whom I asked about State's 
athletic reputation said "punk." Have 
they forgotten our basketball and 
baseball teams of the past three 
years? What's happened to the stu- 
dent body? 

"We should realize that no person 
or group is perfect. Our teams can't 
always win. But we get our share 
of victories over a period of a year. 
Let's keep clear of a defeatist atti- 


First Rehearsal Last Night — Manager Gleason Outlines Program 
for Year — Group Will Appear Soon in Convocation, 
Followed by Various Campus Appearances 

The State College Orchestra, having 
undergone a revival last year under 
the direction of Doric Alviani, opened 
its now season with the first rehearsal 
last night. Despite inclement weather 
o satisfactory turnout took place. 

Although there has been an orches-

Tentative plans have been made 
which indicate an even more extensive 
program this year. However, the sch- 
edule is carefully organised to elim- 
inate undue strain mi members during

year's edition will probably be at a

Agricultural School to Enroll 

Two Hundred Students 


The Stockbridge School of Agri- 
culture, two-year vocational course 
at the College, is expected to enroll a 
freshman class of about 200 students 
when it opens next Monday, accord- 
ing to Roland H. Verbeck, director. 

The school this year has restricted 
enrollment in four major lines of 
study, due to limited facilities which 
make it impossible to care for a 
larger student body. 

Courses in animal husbandry, wild- 
life management, hotel stewarding, 
and dairy manufactures are subject 
to limitation this year. 

Courses in poultry husbandry, 
floriculture, fruit growing, ornamen- 
tal horticulture, and vegetable gar- 
dening are still unrestricted as to en- 

After the completion of a record 
breaking year of musical activity, 
the beginning of a new semester 
finds the college musical organiza- 
tions ready for another and even 
greater period of intensive activity. 
Under the guidance of Doric Alviani, 
now famous as the "musical bomb- 
shell" the various clubs came into in- 
ter-state prominence last year for 
the excellence of their concert per- 
formances. Now, having moulded the 
choir, glee clubs, and orchestra into 
saolid organizations, Mr. Alviani has 
released a general program for the 
coming year which wil rank these 
groups with the finest in New Eng- 
land. In striking the keynote for the 
future, Doric indicated that nothing 
short of perfection will be satisfac- 


One of the most striking musical 
innovations during the past year has 
been the development of a college 
choir. Adding a real and delicate 
beauty to the Sunday afternoon Ves- 
per services, this group of 35 people 
is composed chiefly of previous mem- 
bers. Because of the large turn-out 
of new candidates, however, the for- 
mation of a Freshman choir will take 
place soon. This is a very unusual 
step for a coed colege, although Mt. 
Holyoke and Smith have freshmen 
and varsity groups. Encouraged by 
last year's results, the choir will en- 
large its repertoire to include ora- 
torio selections. Another, even more 
complete presentation of "The Mes- 
siah" will feature the Christmas pro- 
gram again this year, while "Elijah" 
has been considered for performance 
next Spring. It is expected that the 
choir will make several outside ap- 
pearances during the Fall and win- 
ter months. 

Glee Clubs 

The Men's Glee Club is well on its 
way, accumulating new selections. 
The new number are more elabor- 
ate, featuring difficult but finished 
arrangements by Archibald David- 
son, conductor and aranger for the 
Harvard glee club, and by Deems 
Taylor. Two new arangements by 
Fred Waring, as yet unpublished, 
will be made available in about a 
month. The club has already started 
rehearsal on "Oh, Caesar, Great 
Wert Thou" from The King** Hench- 
men and "Song of the Bacchantes." 
This year, "Stouthearted Men" will 
be replaced by a new and splendid 
arrangements of "I Love A Parade." 
New also is 'Old Americana," a med- 
ley. Several new sea chanties com- 
plete the list. These latter songs in- 
volve an unusual combination of two 
pianos, baritone solo, men's chorus, 
and two sets of tympany.

The re-appearance of khaki on the campus reminds us that 

there is a war in Europe. The Congress of the United States 

is still trying to find a definition for "neutrality" that will 

keep us out of the war. Repercussions, however, are being 

j felt even on American college campuses. 

Rhodes scholarships for the current year have 
been suspended, the Associated Press stated. Those 
students who are now in Europe have been asked to 
return as soon as they can find passage. Advanced 
Rhodes scholarships have not been suspended, the A. P. 

Smith college announced some time ago that the policy 
of having some students spend their junior year abroad would 
be discontinued until further notice. The plan has found favor 
in other colleges, as well, until now the number of students 
not going abroad is 7,500. Exchange students, who were to have 
gone to European colleges swell that number by 300. 

Union College jumped the gun when their exchange 
student with St. Andrews University in Scotland left for 
Europe last Summer to tour the continent before going 
to tour the continent before going to the University in 
October. The outbreak of hostilities found him "within 
an ace of being in Munich," he wrote in a letter from 
Zurich, which was published in the Union Concordiensis. 
The exchange student closed with "until then (his next 
letter) we hope Union organizes no R.O.T.C." This is a 

thought nearer home.

Two eastern colleges have added courses in higher learn- 
ing to their curriculum, recent publications announced. Har- 
vard University Graduate School has a newly founded department 
of aeronautical engineering, says the New York Times. At Rens- 
selaer Polytechnic Institute a course in flying will be given by 
the Civil Aeronautics Authority. The course will include seventy- 
two hours of ground school, and actual flying instruction which 
will fit the students for regular piloting. ■ 

"When a dog bits a man, that's not news," but when a 
governor hands out $300,000 from funds under his control to 
build a new administration building, as the governor of Calif- 
ornia has done for the University of California, that is news. 

California is so far away, though, that it is beyond our pall.

Judging from the state of affairs in the R.O.T.C. department, 
students ought to make a protest to the U. S. Army Headquarters. 
A freshman was measuring a R.O.T.C. coat (technically termed 
"Blouse") which was a number of sizes too large. If only he 
had Army boots big enough, we thought logically, he would not 
need pants. 

At least we ought to have our cannon fodder well-dressed in 
the World War II, into which our entry is inevitable according 
to a poll recently held.

With few exceptions, the water 
colors are of winter scenes, and, re- 
calling Hamilton's exhibited work of 
last year, they are quite character- 
istic. The emphasis in these paint- 
ings — which might be easily noted 
from any chair in the room — is upon 
snow and pine trees and general 
brightness. The peculiar thing about 
the last, however, is that in none of 
the paintings is the sun actually 
shown. It sinks behind a mountain, it 
cast blue shadows of trees, but never 
does it actually show itself. 


It is comforting that the paintings 
of Labrador done when it was with- 
out the traditional snow show it as 
one would expect it to be — more 
varied and brilliant in color, yet still 
very cool in tone. In fact the chara< - 
teiistica of the winter scenes aie 
not only retained, but increased in

however, something inherently techn- 

' ical and painstaking about pencil 

sketches, and these — in comparison

On the whole, the exhibition is 
worth more than a hasty glance on 
' the way to the bowling alleys. 
Whereas such a one-man show must 
of necesity repeat a general theme 
and method of painting, it does not*, 
in this case, become boring. In fact 
the genuine beauty of these land-

not fail to give pleasure.

Statesmen Open Season With Injury - Ridden Springfield 

About this time of year, every 
year, the sports editor sits down at 
his typewriter and pounds out a col- 
umn on supporting the football team, 
telling us that if we get in there 
and yell, the club will get in there 
and fight. 

It seems a shame that anyone 
should have to tell State College stu- 
dents to support their teams and this 
year it doesn't look as if it will be 
necessary to even mention it. For 
the first time in quite a few years 
the Maroon will field a team that 
won't beg support, but will earn it. 
Some afternoon when all you have 
to do is read fifty pages of Pats or 
finish up your chemistry notebook, 
drop out to the practice field and 
watch Coach Ebb Caraway's boys 
go through their paces. If you watch- 
ed last year's club or the '37 edition 
at all, it will be best if you stand 
near a post or bench when you watch 
because you'll need some support to 
steady you while you are getting 
over the difference between this year's 
club and the teams of the past few 

Spirit is the keynote of this 
season's club. No longer do we 
see sleeping hulks standing on 
the sidelines gulping water or 
chatting with friends. The whole 
club from Captain Blasko to the 
lowest sub are on their toes. Of 
course, you can argue that spir- 
it alone never won a football 
game. It takes talent and spirit 
to produce victories and this sea- 
son's squad looks as if it can 
show plenty of both. 

Tomorrow night the team opens 
under the Mazdas at Pratt Field in 
Springfield against Springfield Col- 
lege and we suggest that most of 
the student body make the twenty- 
five mile trip to watch the States- 
men in their opener. The club won't 
need you to build up its spirit, but 
you will want to be there to watch 
what looks like State's best team in

We find that as yet only nine 
plebes have indicated their desire to 
participate in cross country. Con- 
sidering the fact that the schedule 
arranged for the '43's this season 
will be one of the best ever set up, 
it would be to the advantage of the 
long-legged and longer-winded mem- 
bers of the class of '43 to give the 
hill-and-dale sport a trial . . . And 
if it is their intention to continually 
vie with the town rivals, why not

Rensselaer Shapes Up Unknown 

Quantity — Maroon Team 

Not Picked 

Little Dynamite 

The State Hooters will open their 
season this Saturday against an over- 
confident Rensselaer at Alumni Field. 
Coach Larry Briggs has a consider- 
able job ahead of him in picking the 
mento face the invading Cherry and 
White eleven. 

Last year, the Maroon was out- 
booted 5 to 1 at Rensselaer's North 
Field, but despite the onesidedness of 
the score, the contest was close. 

Few positions are certain but a 
tentative lineup has been drawn up. 
Pearson, Silverman, or Smith will get 
the call for the goalie slot, while 
the backs will have to be chosen 
from the following: Gould, Jacob- 
son, Jackobek, Cushman, Brown, 
Howe, Klaman, Burr, Moody, Erik- 
son. On the insides will be Buckley, 
Akroyd, Meyer, or Simons, with cen- 
ter a toss-up between Schoonmaker 
and Arnold. The wings will be picked 
from Mullaney, Bowen, Hibbard, 
Papp, and Goodwin. 

Coach Richard Schmelzer's R. P. I. 
squad is hampered by the loss of 
five of its first string men, and hopes 
of replacements from the freshman 
team have petered out. In addition 
the R. I. team will have the handi- 
cap of playing on a strange field.

A schedule with plenty of compe-

son's contribution of the freshman 
class to the fold of cross-country 
runners. The frosh harriers will have 
plenty of travelling for three of 
the meets are away from home. 

November 7 will see the frosh 
long distance plodders travelling to 
Springfield to compete in the annual 
Connecticut Valley Races. Also on 
the schedule is the New England 
Meet at Boston on Nov. 13, with a 
solo engagement against Trinity 
frosh Nov. 17. Plans are also being 
formulated for a meat with the Am- 
herst frosh. 

Although only nine freshmen have 
signified their intentions of going 
"lit for the cross-country team, 
more are expected to swell the list 
from the many football candidates. 

Among tho-,e who have signed up 
for the sport are: Anderson, Chron- 
iak, Clark, Clerite, Cyrisko, McDon- 
ald, Sprague, Yitkauskas, and Yav- 

This afternoon there will be a

Johnny Blasko, State Football Captain, Makes Debut 
As Signal-Caller Against Springfield in Night Game 

When Coach Ebb Caraway chang- 
ed Captain Johnny Blasko from cen- 
ter to quarterback on the Massachu- 
setts State College varsity, he was 
paying a tribute to the Amherst boy's 
knowledge of the grid game. After 
earning his letter in his sophomore 
year as varsity center, Blasko be- 
came one of the best pivot men in 
New England small college circles, 
last year, and was headed for recog- 
nition on New England "all' teams 
this year. 

Blasko is not the first State Col- 
lege center to end his college years 
as a back, as two men in the reign 
of Mel Taube were switched from 
the pivot position into the backfield. 
Both times this change was made 
under Mel's direction it worked out 
well, with Emil Koenig becoming one 
of the best plunging fullbacks in 
State's history and Jack Sturtevant 
filling in better than all right at the 
quarterback position. Caraway feels 
that Blasko's swap in position will 
follow the Taube precedent and work 
out to the club's benefit. 
Keen Student 

Blasko's debut as a signal caller 
will come this Friday in Springfield 
under the lamps in a night game 
with Springfield College, and no one 
should expect the State captain to 
be the standout in his new position 
that he was at the center of the 
Statesmen's line last year. In taking 
over his new post Johnny has lost 
his chances of "all* mention but in 

doing this he will have added much 
needed strength and polish to the 
State attack. Johnny is not a born 
quarterback and can not be expected 
to diagnose the foe's position and 
plays in the manner of Barry Wood, 
but Johnny is a keen student of foot- 
ball and will be able to give the State 
squad an organized attack that will 
make up for his lack of genius in 
play calling with efficiency in carry- 
ing out Caraway's orders. 

Giving up his chance of making a 
reputation as one of the best cen- 
ters in this section means little or 
nothing to Johnny as long as State 
wins football games. One of the most 
respected men on the campus, Johnny 
is naturally one of the most respect- 
ed men on the grid squad. He was not 
elected captain on his ability alone, 
but because he is just the type of 
leatler that the Statesmen need to 
pull them out of the athletic dol- 

1 drums they have; suffered for the 
past two years. A fighter who puts 

j hil heart into every minute of play, 
Blasko has gained campus recogni- 
tion with the same traits that have 
made him a football leader. 
A. H. S. C.rad 
Graduating from Amherst High 
School with a good average and a 
desire to go to college, he found that 
empty coffers would make it neces- 
sary for him to earn all his expenses 
for his college education. This has 

| meant that every spare minute not 
spent on studies or sports has found 

the State captain working to earn 
his way through college. Usually 
when a student has to work as hard 
as Johnny has had to, he is not very 
well known on campus whether he 
takes part in sports or not. This is 
not the case with Blasko, however, 
and he is now a member of the Sen- 
ate, college governing body; the 
Adelphia, senior honorary society; 
and is active in many campus com- 
mittees. Without time to make him- 
self known to the students, Johnny 
had so much to him that the 
students made themselves known to 
him and found him the leader in 

i campus affairs that they knew he 

! was in football. 

Won Medal 

The State captain is only twenty 

years old but packs his 1M0 pounds 

on a very mature six-foot frame. 

He has been a member of the varsity 

.basketball squad and is Interested in 
all sports. Last year he was award- 
ed the Allan Leon Pond memorial 
trophy for his sportsmanship. He is 
a good student, majoring in history 
with an eye to teaching the subject 
after graduation. 

With nine tough games facing his 
team this year Captain Blasko does 
not look for nine wins but he plan - 
to give everything that he has to 
come near that goal and it is lead- 
ership and ability of his type that 
will start State on its up-hill climb 
back to the top of the small college 


When the Masstate varsity foot- 
ball team takes the field tomorrow 
night against Springfield College at 
Pratt Field, it will present an array 
of eleven seasoned veterans backed 
by capable replacements. 

According to Coach Caraway, the 
odds will be with the Cymiiasts who 
have the distinction of being the only 
team not defeated by Amherst last 
year, as well as having the advan- 
tage of excellent physical condition 
because of their rigid physical ed- 
ucation requirements. The Statesmen 
will probably experience trouble in 
advancing through the Springfield 
line. With Captain Redding at end, 
Obeck ami Grant at tackles, and 
Werner at center, the Cymnast line 
will be a very strong one. 

Springfield was hard hit by the 
loss of two regular backs Sabetto 
and Johnson, who sustained injuries 
in scrimmage. However, their back- 
field will prove formidable with 
Grimaldl and Poakit as standouts. 

Juniors and seniors will probably 

dominate the Caraway lineup. The 

eleven starting tomorrow night con- 
sists of men who have seen consid- 
erable varsity work. At the wings 
will be Rudge and Norwood, who in 
spite of their contrast in size, work 
very nicely together. At tackle, Car- 
away has veterans Malcom, Prusick, 
and Nelson to choose from. 

The Statesmen have no dearth of 
guards, with Ccoffrion, Simmons, 
I'ayson, and Lavrakas fighting for 
starting positions. Ralph Simmons, 
210-pound transfer from Clemson 
College, South Carolina, has entirely 
lived up to his highly-touted record 
during practice, and State students 
expect great things from the "Hu- 
man Tank" when he makes his de- 
but Friday.

Caraway Hopes to Avenge Last 

Meeting- With State Win 

Over Gymnasts 

Last night over station WMAS 
Coach Caraway and Captain Johnny 
Rlasko of State met with Coach 
Stagg and Captain Redding of 

Springfield college in a pre game 


Roth coaches thought that their 
team was the one to look out for, 
but it seems that the Carawayers 
will have an added incentive to take 
the game. The reason goes away 
back to the days when Caraway was 
playing for Purdue, and Stagg for 

l>uring the Purdue-Chicago tilt 
Cl raway sustained a fractured leg 
when he was dumped by a host of 
Chicagoani including one Paul Stagg. 
That put the State coach out for 
the season, and Friday evening, un- 
der the lights of Pratt Field, he 
hopes to take a long-awaited revenge 
through the medium of a win by the 

State eleven. 

Friday's game will be the first 
name to be played under lights at 
Pratt Field. The Statesmen may

By Chkt Kubalowicz 

l>r. Charles F. Fraker, Associate 
Professor Of Modern Languages, has 
returned from Europe early this 
week, his plans to visit Spain and 
other parts of the Continent upset 

by the latest European war crisis. 

His experiences, however, throw- 
light especially on the general situ- 
ation in England and on the part that 
civilians play in modern warfare. 
A grim reminder of his trip is an 
English gas mask which he brought 
with him. His trip, on the whole, was 
interesting in many ways — humorous, 
for example, when he tells of spend- 
ing "ten nights in a barroom" — dra- 
matic, when he describes two false 
air raid alarms — and absorbing, 
when he tells of the up-to-the-minute 
means of warfare and war precau- 

On Queen Mary 

Df. Fraker had crossed on the 
Queen Mary in four days and eleven 
hours. On September 27th, the last 
night on sea even before war was 
declared, the admiralty took over the 
transatlantic boat and ordered a com- 
plete blackout. This was their first 
intimation of the eme r g e nc y condi- 
tions in Europe. 

"Submarine chasers were station- 

ed just outside the harbor of Cher- 
bourg, a seaport and naval arsenal 
in Northern France," continued l>r. 

Fraker as nil wife and eldest son 
(who were with him) supplemented 
his account of their wanderings. 
"Across the mouth of the harbor it- 
self were strung chains which pre- 
vented entrance of Nazi submarines. 
It was evident that our proposed 
trip on the Continent had to be post- 
poned, for how many years, no one 
can tell. Since HO large steamers 
could land in Southampton, England, 
we took a small boat across the 
Channel from Cherboug." 
Southampton possessed a complete 
and amazingly modern system of for- 
tification. Although the new gun 
placements and huge batteries of 


A victory dance will be held this 
Saturday in the Drill Hall as the

searchlights were awe-inspiring in 
themselves, the anti-aircraft defense 
mechanisms were practically tinbe 
lievable. Below the gun itself, the 
observer sat. If an enemy bomber 
should appear, he swung the binocu- 
lars in the direction of the plane. A 
system of levers and gears connect 
ing the glasses and the gun itself 
swung the gun also at the enemy 
plane. Focusing the binoculars con- 
trolled the range and elevation of 
the gun, insuring a mechanically di- 
rect hit almost automatically. 
"After landing at Southampton and 
looking over the city, we went to 
Oxford where the Oxford College 
building proved interesting. Next, we 
saw Salisbury; there in the town was 
the Salisbury Cathedral, one of the 
most magnificent sights in England. 
We also explored Stonehenge. In 
sharp contrast to these sights were 
the bus-loads and train-loads of chil- 
li ten refugees at Salisbury. 1(1,000 
children arrived from London (about 
60 miles away) during our stay 
there." Along this vein of war pup 
aration I>r. Fraker talked, for Eng-

ROCK On this campus vve may have a few men who do not 

BOTTOM entirely earn their salaries. But we do not have 
any lobbyist-contributed cases of champagne, nor do 
we see any state-expense gold spittoons. The present budget cut 
of $25,000 comes at a time when the College operating costs are 
practically at rock bottom. We know of several departments 
which will not be able to purchase desperately-needed equip- 
ment. We know of one professor who had to draft his daughter 
to do, unpaid, most of his secretarial work for a few weeks. 
We have seen the incongruity of a decrepit physics building with 
brand new stair treads. 

Logically, the College is a state institution and ought to take 
a budget cut if taxes are to be eased. But there is little logic 
in classifying the College with prisons and insane asylums as is 
done under the present set-up. We can suggest again the old time- 
proven remedy, that of a united, forceful alumni group able to 
deliver the votes that will so free our financial affairs from red 
tape and political entanglements that we need no longer wonder 
if this institution ought not to have two presidents, — one to 
battle the legislature and one to be our educational leader. 

We hope, with President Baker, that the undergraduates will 
not too soon forget the present penny-pinching. 

./. F. 

WELCOME The blue caps of the Stockbridge Freshmen are 
BACK again with us, as are the second year students in 

the School of Agriculture, and we of Massachu- 
setts State College welcome the vocational group back to our 
campus. Taken by some as a part of the college; by others, as 
a separate institution merely located on the campus, Stock- 
bridge School, although academically ranked way below the 
four-year courses, will always be taken or mistaken for State 
as long as it is located at this end of town on the same campus. 

As Stockbridge students are often taken for State students, 
the responsibility of acting like college students should not be 
taken too lightly by the School's undergraduates. Such things 
as the hazing of the Stockbridge fraternities that requires 
pledges to dress in pajamas, with the lining turned out, and 
parade about the campus looking like a group of high school 
kids, will never help the good name of the college, nor will 
rowdy behavior up town or in Northampton. If the Stockbridge 
students want to say this year, as they have in past years, that 
they go to Massachusetts State, we only ask that they aci as 
if they did.

Reading Time: 1 Min. 30 Sec. 
Twelve o'clock noon. Joe DeFillipo 
looked nervously at his watch. On!.- 
twenty more minutes. Twelve-twen'.v 
the Boss had said, and Joe Miev 
the Boss was right — always wa». H> 
flicked away his cigarette ana entered 
the nearest drug store. Might as well

"Hello, Boss, this is Joe. Veal:, 
I'm here. Only a block away. Na.v, 
I ain't nervous. Just wanted finrl 
instructions . . . No, I'm not nervous, 
I tell you . . . Let me get this straight. 
The Big Shot comes out at 12:81) 
. . . Yeah . . . I'll be there ... I 
won't miss him this time . . . Yup, 
I've got it here in my inside pocket." 

No Bulge 

Joe felt of his inside pocket. Every- 
thing O.K. there. He looked at his 
reflection in the telephone booth glas... 
Hnimm, his suit didn't even uuli't . 
No one would notice. 

"Yes, Boss. Yes . . . but how will 
I know him ? . . . I know I seen hu.i 
before, but he ain't impressed on nr, 
memory . . . Yeah, but what about 
the cops ? . . . Uh, huh . . . I'm to 
get him just as he comes out tho 
door, you say ? That ain't so easj . 
Boss. You know what happened the 
last time. I missed him . . . No, no. 
. . . I'll get him don't worry. A 
pencil striped suit, black hair. O.K. 
Yes, Boss. Yes, Boss. O.K. So 
long. If I don't get back, you know 
what happened. 

Dangerous Business 

Joe hung up, left the booth, hougu.j 
■i package of cigarettes, and went 
>ut into the street. Twelve-ten. AbouL 
time to head for the City Hall. .1 
ambled slowly down the street. This 
was the worst job the Boss eve. ■ 
gave him. Dangerous business. li - 
he failed, God only knows what would 

Twelve-fifteen. Joe swung in tight 
of the City Hall. Five more minutes 
Joe's heart beat faster. Beads <-.,' 
sweat formed on his brow. He 
chewed nervously on his cigarette. Un- 
reached hesitatingly into hia inside 
pocket. He felt the cold, assuring 
metal. Everything in order. He 
moved silently up the City Hall step ,. 
People were coming and g itnjj un- 
mindful of Joe DeFillipo. Wi h these 
people'd scram. Joe faced the main 
door and waited. People, pe p : e . . 
why so many people? . . . They' 1 
muff it for him. That's what. 

Twelve-twenty! Joe's heart 

thumped. He glanced behind hnn. 
Could make his getaway around tht 
side. The door opened. A distin- 
guished man stepped out. Pencil 
striped suit, black hair. No failing 
this time. Sweat began to poui. 
God, now was the time. 

Joe ran to but a foot in front of 
the Big Shot. He whipped out a 
metal-bound book. "Excuse me, Mi. 
Taylor, but could I have your auto 
graph? My wife's an admirer of 
yours, and if I don't get your aut< 
graph now, she'll raise hell." 



Now that the colleges and univer- 
sities, at least of the northeastern 
section of the United States, have 
opened their doors "for business as 
usual", as one university president 
has put it, it is interesting and some- 
what significant to note that nearly 
every college president whose address 
to new students was reported in the 
press discussed more or less at length 
the effects of the war in Europe upon 
American and, particularly, upon Am- 
erican educational institutions. 
Though stated differently, nearly 
every one emphasized the necessity 
for the American people, as repres- 
ented by college communities, to De 
resistant to propaganda, to do clear 
thinking and to be as fair-mindeJ 
and as patient as possible. This advice 
is good and yet there is question as to 
how much attention will be paid to it 
by college students of New England 
or any other section of the country. 
As we run over the headlines of the 
papers from day to day, and peihaps 
glance hurriedly through editorials, 
and as some, if not many, get snat- 
ches of the news over the radio inter- 
;persed with music and the dance, 
we all seem to be moving in a fog 
of propaganda. One of the warring 
nations claims a successful airplane 
attack or the sinking of a ship and 
the other warring nation denies it. 
In all of this welter of news, mucn 

>f which may be propaganda, there 
appear SO many "ifs" that no one 

eem? very clear M to just what is 
happening on the other side and want 

ho outcome may be of the diplomat. 


efforts and the fighting, limited nov\ 
that Poland has disappeared. 

Clear Thought Necessary 
As has been pointed out b\ 
others, it seems perfectly evident that 
if any of us, consciously or oiherwi-< 
definitely take sides it should be basec 
upon a clear analysis of the reason.- 
why the American people should taki 
sides. It is my opinion that it is a! 
to the good that the American peop. 
are definitely taking sides. It is jusi 
against our way of thinking in tin 
country to admire the fellow who sL- 
>n the fence and waits to see whicl 
side will be the most advantageou. 
for him to choose. The test of o 
ability to think, our stability an i 
steadfastness, even our form of gov 
ernment, will come as we have taker 
sides, and I think most of u-, beliew 
to whether we can use our head 
rather than our hearts in determin 
ing the course which we shall follow. 
Our hearts may cause us to choow 
sides, and I think most of us beleivi 
that the vast majority of our people 
will be definitely against the dictator- 
of Europe. Our heads should make 
it possible for us to determine a 
course that will keep us reasonably 
neutral, whatever that may mean, ami 
most definitely keep us within our 
->wn yards and out of the scrap in 
the other fellow's yard. It is my hop<' 
that every student in this College 
will take sides, honestly and definite^ , 
and yet at the same time have the 
good sense and the courage to speak 
and act in such a way as to kee i 
this country out of war.

'ollection is Second in Series of Eighteen Now Scheduled for 
Showing on Campus — Outstanding Photographic 

Presentations to be Made Available Here 



By Mary Donahue 
The present exhibition of photo- 
raphs in Goodell Library was done 
by the Albany Camera Club. It repre- 
sents the Club's first year of showing 
and, though no photograph in the 
group is of outstanding merit, it 
( ems a commendable beginning. 
Second in Series 
This exhibition is the second in 
the series of eighteen scheduled to 
. shown during the present college 
tar. The first was shown at the 
Jones Library before the opening of 
ollege and the others will be shown 
.it Goodell in the coming months. 
SoOM of the more important exhibits 
which are to come here include those 
f the Boston Camera Club and the 
Manhattan Camera Club, whose The 
Lute Mr. Jones was one of the most 
memorable of last year's photo- 
graphs. A one- woman show by Peggy , 
Cold, A.R.P.S. of New York, and the | 
tOllegiate Digest Salon — last year i 
they exhibited Grumpy by Mr. Von- 
dell of the State facility — uie also 
scheduled for this year. The last and 
perhaps the most important exhibi- \ 
tion of the year will be in May — a 
one hundred print salon from Hun- j 
irary, whose photographs are inter- 
nationally noted for their refreshing | 
and thoroughly original style. This 
j exhibition is much sought after — it 
announced its presence in America 
on September 1st, and was engaged 
almost at once for the entire year.

The freshmen boys certainly have 
a lot to live down. The concensus of 
opinion is that they were brought up 
in a barn or are just naturally un- 
enlightened. Half the class seems to 
think that the Abbey center is the 
Thatcher recreation room. A special 
house meeting had to be called so a., 
to inform the young men that Thatcn-

College Important 

The State College students form 
an important nucleus of the Amherst 
Association, since it is through their 
ardent -support that such excellent 
programs are secured for presenta 
tion. Even at this early date, the 
committee has announced the per- 
formance by Bartiett and Robertson, 
duo -pianists Other 
attractions undei consideration are: 
the Btradivariua String Quartet, and 
the Balinese l»ancers with I>evi Dja 
and native orchestra. Then- will be 
at least three concerts, and probably 
four. In addition the tickets are good 
at certain performances in Green- 
field and Pittsfiehl. 

Every student enrolled at State 
will he approached by Alviani's corps 
of workers. 

As always, outstanding performers 
will appear here. The particular 
type of organization in Amherst 
makes is possible for the very best 
of the smaller ensemhles to appeal. 
Artists of outstanding success in past 
years have been: Nelson Eddy; Helen 
Jepeon; Wilbur Evans; and Eugene 

A new system of conducting the 
coeds' competitive games was de 
cided upon by W. A. A. in a meeting 

held last week. Instead of the inter 
class contests of former years, teams 

will he organised from the Abbey, the 

sororities, or from other dormitories 
and organizations in the hope of 
stimulating interest in athletics 
among the coeds. Rifle, archery, and 
swimming teams, and games of has- 
ketball, field hockey, and soccer will 
he organized in the near future on 
this basis. The annual tennis tourna- 
ment is already under way with 
twenty-four girls competing. A bad- 
minton tournament is also scheduled 
to be started this fall. 

Wednesday, Oct, i, wasthe date set 
for the annual W. A. A. tea, to be 
given at the Abbey. The Abbey proc- 
tors will play hostess to the fresh- 
men at another tea on Oct. 11. Later

and the Christian Federation will 
give teas at the Abbey under the 
sponsorship of the W. S. G. A.

State College Students Voice Opinions on 

Various Aspects of United States and War 



|{> Bernard Fox 
Pending certain and windry <*•■ 
velopments, we shall discuss diver* 
and different matters not hitherto dis- 
cussed. We have before as a record 
(no pun. please) very wisely, we " ov - 
see, insisted on by Ooric Ahriani 
of all records played during the pa. - 
year in the music room. And it ir 
curious to aee the various types ..: 
music asked for by all those entering 
the music room. We have everything 

on the list from "Tiger Bag"— yo 

heard PM — to Edward Yarese's "loiii 
aation." In case any of you have 
never heard the latter, chem depart- 
ment note, it sounds something like 
"Symphony of Corn Popping." 
The first piece asked for last 
year was the second "Ueonore 
Overture" hy Reetht»en. The 
last one asked for was— now 
don't laugh— "Schwanda 4 I r 
Dudelsackpfeiffer." by Weinher- 
ei. Among a certain element in 
the music room, this piece, really 
only rather good, assumes pro- 
portions of excellence attained 
only by such as the best of the 
"HV. And this same element 
wants its volume to be commen- 
surate with that jokingly called 
"police action" now occurring in 

The highest number of listetiei. 
present during one afternoon was •*:<; 
the lowest number was 0. This las* 
happened when our skittish weatln ,■ 
man decided to forecast a deluge du: 
ing one Sunday afternoon. The aver- 
age number of listeners was about li:; 
or s... More people attended durin./ 
the first part of the year than during 
the last. From our personal recollec- 
tion the number of boys present was 
about 5 times the number of gin., 
(this item was not noted in the re 
ord book). 

It is very difficult to decide which 
was the piece asked for most durii..,' 
the year, because honors are divided 
rather equally among several. Prob- 
ably these were the most popular: 
Mozart. "Symphony No. 40"; Men 
delssohn, "Violin Concerto"; Rimsk;. - 
Korsakov. "Scheherazade". Tschaikow- 
sky, "Symphony No. '?"; ditto 
'Marche Slave"; ditto "Nutcrackti 
Suite." By far the most popular com 
poser was Tschaikowsky. Next cam- 
Beethoven; then Wagner. 

The types represented among 
the clients of the supervisors 
varied from the gluey sentimen- 
tal, who preferred the theme from 
Tschaikowsky popularized as 
"Our Love" to the desiccated in- 
tellectual who drooled over the 
unearthly modernism represented 
by Harsanyi and Hindemith. In 
general, however, the choices 
were quite decent, taking a wide 
range of composers and musical 

i!y apparent consent, the piece hav- 
ing most individual appeal to any 
particular clique — yes, we have the 
animals even there— was Proko- 
fiev's "Classical Symphony." Th<; 
piece having the most people dish*.- 
it was Scriabin's "Prometheus." Pei- 
haps we should not designate a single 
selection for this rather pathetic posi- 
tion, but a class. The moderni.t- a- 
a whole met the most opposition. 

Apparently w«- are in general class-

On Saturday, October 2, Dr. Frak- 
er and his family were in Liverpool. 
That night a blackout was ordered 
and strictly enforced. The blackout 
affected every inhabitant of the town, 
citizens and tourists alike. A crack 
of light coming from a window would 
mean a five-pound ($20.00) .tint 
Ruses and taxis had lights, quite 
feeble ones, which could not be seen 
from the air. London being closed 
as a port, supplies must be unloaded 
at Liverpool and hauled 180 miles to 
London. These trucks can be heard 
every night on their way over rough 
country roads which are about as bad 
as the New England side roads. 

"It was fairly exciting throughout 
our stay in Liverpool,' continued Dr. 
F raker. "For three weeks we rushed 
to and from the consulate. Meanwhile 
two British airplanes were shot 
down by their own anti-aircraft bat- 
teries by error. As a result of the 
firing, several windows were broken 
by shrapnel, and machine-gun fire 
did some damage in some sections of 
the city. There is a constant fear 
of attack. A balloon barrage en- 
circling the city will force enemy 
planes to fly much higher than ordi-

Dr. F raker said in dealing with the 
return trip. "We waited three hours 
in line for a tender to take us to the 
steamer. No ships could said without 
express permission and orders from 
the British government. We had no 
idea when we were to sail. We could 
not let our friends in America know 
when or on what boat we were re- 
turning. And the ship itself was 
crowded as were most of the ships 
lately. My son and I slept on Army 
cots in the ship's barroom for the 
whole voyage, lasting ten days; I 
never realized that I would spend 'ten 
days in a barroom." 

American flags were painted on 
the mashead, on top of the cabins, 
and on both sides of the ship. At 
night they were illumniated to pre-

The Outing Club voted to go on 
record as petitioning the college to 
have Mountain Day this year, at 
their meeting Tuesday night. 

The petition stated that they would 
like to have the Day on a day of 
regular classes, but if this were im- 
possible, to have it on October 12. 
Since Mt. Toby is impassable a coin 
mittee was chosen to go over the 
trails on Mt. Tom. 

The club will conduct a four col- 
lege hike, with Smith, Mt. Holyoke, 
and Amherst, this weekend. It will 
take the form of a bicycle hike to the 
Northfield Hostel. 

One group will leave Friday af 
teinooii and will stay till Sunday. 
Another group will leave Saturday 
and stay overnight.

Bpoke on hiking, at the meeting. 

A successful hike to the Holyoke 
range, with Mt. Holyoke, and Am- 
herst, was held last Sunday. Supper 
was served at the Mt. Holyoke cabin 
on Mt. Holyoke, with singing ami 
dancing afterward. 

The trip was originally scheduled 

! as a hike to Rattlesnake Gutter, but 

was changed because of inclement 

weather. The original trip may be 

taken at a later date.

Famous American Troupe Here 
October 16 With the 

"Dance of Ages" 


Ted Shawn, famous American 
dancer, and his company of men, 
will present "l»ance of the Age*," 
an elemental rhythmus in four 
movements, when they come to State 
College on October 28 for a Social 
Union engagement 

Choreographically, "Dance of the 
Age*" is probably Shawn's most sig- 
nificant work. It was said by tin- 
critic of the "Boston Herald" that 
in many respects to be the greatest 
dance work that America has yet 
produced* Shawn has taken the four 
elements, fire, water, earth and air 
as movement qualities for this work 
and, in so doing, has created ample 
opportunity for a varied program 
thematically and choreographically. 
Also, each of the four movements 
represents a stage in the develop- 
ment of human society. 

Soloists on the program in addi- 
tion to Shawn are: Barton Mumaw, 
who has been a featured soloist for 
several years; Wilbur McCormack, 
now in his seventh year with the 
company; Fred Hearn and Frank 
Overlee, who have also been with 
the company since its first season. 
Other members of the ensemble are 
Frank and John Delmar, John Schu- 
bert and Harry Coble.

If freshmen followed the advice and suggestions which edi- 
tors offer them, nearly as many of the ' 43'a will graduate as are 
in college now. The editor of the Vermont Cynic wrote — 
"Too many students have the wrong attitude towards college 
and college life. They believe that collegiate life is comparable 
to a prolonged picnic — that college is a glorified country club. 
Some will learn their lesson early and survive, while others 
will not profit at all from their mistakes." 

The Rennsxelaer Polytechnic devoted almost a full page to 
a chart which bears the caption, "How to Get the Best out 
of Rensselaer." The chart goes on to describe a program so 
vigorous that even a State freshman would be tired at night if 

he undertook to follow it.

The Association of American Colleges, of which Massachu- 
setts State College is a member, is planning a three year pro- 
gram for the advancement of culture on the campuses of the 
smaller colleges which are members of the Association, and 
which find it financially impracticable to employ full time in- 
structors or top-ranking members in the fields of art. The Arts 
Program is being paid for by the Carnegie Corporation, which 
has granted $54,000 to the Association for the program. 

The principle features of the novel idea are to bring pro- 
fessional artists and authors on education to the colleges 
that lack well-developed cultural opportunities. These leaders 
will remain in residence on the campus so that their influence 
will come to be felt by personal contacts with the students. 
The plan seeks to avoid the "flash-in-the-pan" appearance of 
artists who arrive on the campus a half hour before the 
curtain and depart on the 11:40 train for New York after 
the concert, leaving only a short echo of their artistry.

It has been heard about campus 
chat the State club was "lucky to tie 
Springfield." Admittedly, the Gym- 
nasts came up with a strong team 
last Friday night. Rut, it must not 
be overlooked that the Statesmen 
were just as strong, just as smart, 
and perhaps just a little pluckier than 
their rivals. 

Statistics bear this out. Mass- 
achusetts State made a total of 
ten first downs while Springfield 
College scored only nine. Another 
fact not to be forgotten is that 
the State defense was also click- 
ing in good style as the Spring- 
field offense was stopped cold 
twice within State's ten yard line. 

* * 

In a letter to the editor from a 
chap with plenty of time and pa- 
tience we learned the following facts: 
that since the beginning of the foot- 
ball season the State varsity team 
has been tagged by newspaper wi it- 
ers as "M. S. C. eleven," "Caraway 
club," "Aggies," "Mass. State," "Ma- 
roon," and 'gridiron warriors." 

The writer suggested a distinctive 
name and offered "Statesmen" as his 
contribution. The name is a distinc- 
tive one but not nearly as colorful 
as we would like. We wonder what the 
opinion of the student body is on this 
matter. It may be well to bear in 
mind that as far as we know State 
has no mascot.

Fencing is conspicuous through its 
absence this year. There are several 
upperclassmen on campus capable of 
coaching any and all interested. And 
the oddity is that there does not seem 
to be any interest.

Larry Rrigg's State hooters ran 
into a suprisingly good Rensselaer 
team last Saturday with the result 
that the locals absorbed a 4 to beat- 
ing in their first start of the 1\WJ 
season. The men from Troy, exhibit- 
ing a club that included several Cu- 
bans, Columbians, and Peruvians, 
combined one of the fastest forward 
lines seen here in a long time with 
a capable defense. 

Hartnell, Engineer center, perform- 
ed the seldom-seen hat-trick at State's 
expense. Two of his goals came in 
the first period and his other came 
in the third. Mercade, a tricky for- 
ward who was a pleasure to watch, 
provided the fourth tally. Goodman 
at left halfback and Romanach at 
fullback were other standouts. 

Language students could have

by attending the game. Rensselaer, 
had it desired, could have fielded an 
entire club composed of men from 
Spanish-speaking countries. 
Play Even 

Play in the first period was fairly 
even until the latter part of the ses- 
sion when Rensselaer scored two 
markers in cpjick succession. Both 
were made on quick get-aways after 
poor clearing by State backs. On 
both occasions Hartnell steamed in 
all alone on goalie Silverman. During 
the greater part of the game the En- 
gineers elected to wait for the breaks 
and let State do the rushing. When 
the breaks came, their front line had 
the speed to take advantage of them, 
as evidenced by the lopsided tally. 

The score, however, does not give 

a true picture of the tide of battle.

Showing for the first time in several

Caraways' varsity football team

both teams played hard, clean football 
In their first renewal of rivalries since 

The Gymnasts opened the game 
with a display of power in a land 
attack which silenced the large nun, 
ber of State rooters who turned 
out for the game. The Maroons from 
Springfield registered four first downs 
only to have Johnson fumble and 
Rudge recover for State on their own 
20 yard line. State failed to ga.n 
and kicked to the 50 yard marker. 
Springfield started another march 
but finally lost the ball on downs on 
State's 20, when they attempted a 
pass attack.

This gave the boys from the "Cuy

State line showed evidences of powei

tinned until a toss to Capt Reddl ig 

was snared. Redding reached the nine 
yard marker before he vis brought 
down by Russ Clark. Rut 8 MeroOi 
fumble which was recovered by Dan 
Carter gave the ball t - State who 

promptly kicked out of danger. 

Tufts and Amherst, major oppon- 
ents on the State College football 
slate are both picked to finish on the 
short end of their games this Sat- 
urday as the Jumbos open at Middle- 
bury against the conquerors of Wil- 
liams, and the Soldiers of the King 
visit big-time Brown University at 

The outlook for the State oppon- 
ents this week is none too bright as 
along with Tufts and Amherst, two 
other grid foes are slated to bow. 
The University of Connecticut should 
fare poorly with Wesleyan as the 
Cardinals out-fought and almost top- 
ped strong Rutgers, and should pack 
too much power for the Storrs com- 
bine. As Worcester Poly opens with 
Coast Guard, both State rivals, one 
more foe is bound to be pushed into 
the defeated column. In this game 
the odds should go to W. P. I. but 
only after a hard battle. 

R. P. I. is a slight favorite to top 
Hamilton College this Saturday but 
the Engineers rule as a paper fav- 
orite only, and anything can happen 
on the Hamilton field. 

Lloyd Jordan's Lord Jeff squad is 
none too happy over the Vermont 
upset of Saturday and will spend the 
Brown game trying not to get hurt. 


State Team Meets Strong Outfit 

at Hanover Briggs Irons 

Out Mistakes 

Satisfied that they will meet n> 

better teams this season than the 
Rensselaer club which gave them a 
4-o lieking Saturday, the state soccer 
eleven prepares to take a new lease 
on life on Saturday, when thej

the Dartmouth Indians. This will he 
State's first contest of the year in 

the N. E. Intercollegiate league, 

During the last two years, Stat- 
and Dartmouth have broken even, 
State winning in "M 1-0 and Dait- 
mouth's Strong team of last fall taking 
the locals by a 2-0 score. This year's 
tilt promises to he fully as close as 
the previous ones. Dartmouth figures 
to have another strong team, ami 
State should profit by last week's 
mistakes and show the kind of soccei 
Of which they are capable. Fault-; 
which cropped up in the contest with 
the Engineers from Troy are being 
worked on by Larry Briggs, Among 
these were inaccurate passing an 1 
slipshod covering and clearing on ths 
defense. Coach Briggl is confident 
however, that these kinks will grad- 
ually be ironed out and that his new- 
est club will continue State's tine 
soccer record. It has already shown 
that it is an aggressive, fibhting club. 

The lineup for Saturday's tilt is 
uncertain and will probably not be 
decided until just before game time. 
At least four or five positions are stid 
open. Captain Rog Brown will un-

Saturday afternoon Eb Caraway 
and his men will meet the Bowdoin 
varsity football team at Alumni field. 
The champs of Maine will be State's 
second opponent of the current grid- 
iron campaign, but this game is the 
first of the season for Bowdoin. In 
the Polar Bears the State gladiators 
will find a veteran and polished foot- 
ball aggregation, exceptionally 
strong in several positions and amply 
supplied with capable reserves. Last 
year, it will be remembered, State 
suffered a 35-0 massacre at the hands 
of a powerful Bowdoin eleven, and 
fifteen of those men who were re- 
sponsible for that Maroon and White 
defeat returned this season. 

This year's football edition is the 
much talked of team that will bring 
football back into its own at State. 
Last Friday night at Springfield, 
Capt. Blasko and the boys did a great 
piece of work, and many possibilities 
for a successful season were shown.

Confidence doesn't make a football 
player, but confidence and ability 
Combined make a good player into a 
great player. It is just such con- 
fidence combined with no little ability 
that promises that Ralph Simmons, 
240-pound State College guard, will 
be one of New England's outstanding 
gridders this season. There is a 
great difference between confidence 
and conceit and Simmons demon- 
strates that difference. Powerful 
and well-schooled in football tecn- 

nique, Ralph knows his ability and his 
strength and is sure of himself at 
all times on the gridiron, but with 
all his knowledge of the game and 
his confidence in his own ability. 
Simmons is all the time ready to 
learn and ready to be told anything 
that will help him improve his game 
or help the team improve as a uni' 

The confidence that Simmons has 
shown through all the pre-seasoti 
training and the Springfield game will 
be reflected by the whole club when it 
takes the field this Saturday against 

Bowdoin College on Alumni Field. Not 

only has Ralph convinced himself that 
he will be more than a match for .".ny 
member of opposing squads hut he 
has made the whole ! tat. Hub fed

<ay that he like- to block. This gruel 
ing, unexciting, usually unnoticed re- 
quirement of football is generally cai 
ried OUt :i> unpleasant but neceS' 
lary task; but tint with Simmons. It 
is Hot unusual in practice games to 
see him shoulder block one back and 
rush on to body block some other 
player who is free and threatening in 

stop the play. 

It Wai a good day for Massachu- 
setts State College when Ralph Sim- 
mons d ec ided that he should transfer 
to State from Clemson College, East 
year Ralph was unable to play foot- 
ball as it is a collegiate rule that 
an athlete must attend a college foi 
a year before being eligible for tportS 
but the football edge was n«it wurn olf 
by a year of inactivity as Simmons 
often practiced with the varsity and 
took part in inter-class struggles. At 
Clemson, Simmon- made quite a name 
for himself in southern football cir 
gaining a few Vote* for All-American 

on the strength of his first year'i 
showing in collegiate griddom.

Unlike many outstanding gridmen 
on college elevens, Simmons is no 
worry to the coach. Ebb Caraway,

to Rensselaer much of the time, hut 
was unable to get inside the Ren- 
selaer fullbacks with any degree of 
consistency. Lack of accurate passing 
in payoff territory, a common early 
season fault, was apparent. State's 
defense wasn't helped any by the 
fact that center half Saul Klaman, 
one of the fastest men on the team, 
pulled a leg muscle in the first period. 
Saul was forced to sit on the side- 
lines the remainder of the game.

the sophomore additions to the Ma- 
toon varsity are factors which will 
carry a great deal of weight in the 
outcome of the contest. 

The Bowdoin type of offensive rests 
on placing a great deal of strength 
at the ends of the line. This makes 
for the success of reserves and end 
sweeps. State on the other hand will 
base atacks and off-tackle and cen- 
aerial attacks and off -tackle and cen- 
ter smashes from a double wingback 
formation. The defense of State has 
been well tested by Springfield, but

Senate Announces Event 
be Held Regardless 
of Weather 


Razoo Night, the traditional series 
of freshman-sophomore combats, will 
be held tonight at the Alumni Field 
and the Cage. 

Rally at 7 

There will be a rally and bonfire 
at 7 p.m. In case of rain, the rally, 
speakers, songs, cheers and all, will 
be transferred to the Cage. Immedi- 
ately following the rally, Razoo will 
be held, rain or shine. 

A record turnout of participant! 
is expected, as the fighting spirit of 
both classes is aroused. The sopho- 
mores had to swim the pond as a re- 
sult of losing the rope-pull and are 
out to avenge their defeat. The fresh- 
men are determined to humble then- 
upper-class rivals once again. As 
Razoo Night was not held last year, 
the second-year men have had no ex- 
perience to give them the advantage 
over the yearlings. A close decision 
is expected. 


All the contests are under the su- 
pervision of the Senate. The outdoor 
fracas has two parts: the Nightshirt 
Parade, and the Battle Royal. In 
the Nightshirt Parade, the neophytes 
are herded together, their opponents 
forming a ring around them. At a 
signal, the sophomores attempt to 
separate the freshmen from their 
shirts. This bout is a man-to-man af- 
fair, one sophomore to one freshman. 
After ten minutes, the bout ends and 
a count is taken. The sophs receive 
one point for each shirt re m o v ed, 
and the freshmen one point for each 
shirt retained.

Luv Lures Laboring Athlete From the Straight and Narrow Path 

—Or, Another State Coed Does Her Part to Build a Winning Team 


The following lecture will teach 
you the facts of life on campus. The 
title is "Luv on the Campus". This 
is a sad college luv story to end all 
college luv stories. In it you will see 
a cross-section of State College living 
and luving, incidentally, revealing 
how innocent athletes are lured from 
the straight and narrow path, to 

Act one. (Sweet strains of "Tou- 
jour* L'Amour" blending into "Sons 
of Old Massachusetts.") Setting: the 
College Store. Joe College, nigskin 
hero, bumps into a coed and spills her 
"coke." After buying her another, 
he is lured into a conversation and 
another "coke." Across the table he 
comments, "Cavsh, you got the same 
moony eyes that my old cow on our 
farm has; you sure are beautiful 
Suzy." (He is hooked.) 

Coming back from the Abbey, he is 
in a horrible daze, a helpless state 
commonly termed "luv." At the fra- 
ternity he undresses, climbs into bed, 
falls through because of missing bed- 
springs which considerate fraternity 
brothers removed, and sleeps the night 
on the floor with the mattress on top 
of him. Ain't hii' grand I 

Act. Two. Lovers' Lane after a So- 
cial Union program at Stockbridge. 
Suzy Coed hangs onto his arm like 
a sophomore hangs onto the frog that 
he dissects in Physiology !»!». They 
looked into each other's eyes. Joe Col 
lege gazed at the full moon hanging 
over Proxy's house, and dreamily 
said: "I don't feel so hot must be 

something 1 ate." 

Suzy fluttered her eyebrows like 
the typical coed vampire. "Oh my, 
Joe, let's talk about you! Your ca- 

"Shucks, I'm majoring in Use 
Keeping," he told her proudly. 

"How wonderful!" says Suzy. 

Act. Three. Poo Kappa Poo frater- 
nity. The telephone rings. 

"May I speak to Mr. Joseph Carl- 
ton Vernon College, Jr.?" asks a 
sweet voice over the telephone — natu- 
rally, Suzy. 

The fraternity brother answering 
the phone yells up the stairs: "II PY, 

Suzy and Joe pour their hearts out 
over the telephone for fifteen min- 
utes to L'et their nickel's worth out of 

the rteii Telephone Corp. 

"No!" Joe College insisted in re- 

ply to Suzy's suggestion for a date 

Or dancing. "I can't ^o dancing. The 
Coach said that I might hurt a liga- 
ment or fracture my tibia on the 
dance-floor. Too many jitterbugs 
around. And I've not to put the team 
before anything." 

"Then maybe we can study at 
Goodell Library toge th er instead'."' 

Joe was sorry, but the football 
team was meeting that night. "We 
football players spend all of one sem- 
ester hunting up gutty subjects for 
the next semester." 

Joe College should have known bet- 
ter than to argue with a State Col- 
lege wench. Half an hour later, he 
had called up the coach to say that 
he was sick; then he was on his way 
to Amherst with Suzy Coed for a 
drink. (Zounds!) This proved to be 
the night that he gave her his fra- 
ternity pin.

raised an eyebrow when he ordered: —

Council I I I U e I Release 
Plans and Activities 


Taking s quotation directly from 

the foreword of the Honor System 
Constitution, the Honor Council this 
week gave the Collegian the follow- 
ing release on present activities and 
aims : 

1 'We the students of Massachu- 
setts State College, believe that the 
goal "f education is character. The 
man of character deals fairly with 
himself and with others, and would 
rather suffer failure than to stoop to 
fraud. The Honor System stands for 
this attitude in all relations of th. 
students with the Paculty.' 

"The above quotation la taken di- 
rectly from the foreword of the Con- 
stitution of the Honor System. When 
first written, these words exemplified 
the high moral spirit which prompted 

the state student, of 1980 to Inaugu- 
rate the system. It was these word- 
that finally persuaded the Paculty to 
extend to the students the privilege 

of the Honor System. 

The Question 

"This sentiment still expresses the 

spirit behind the system, but does 

it voice the mood of the student 
body of today This is the question 
which the Honor Council has de- 
termined to answer. 

'Thus the council has designated the

INVITATION If we interpret our anthropology aright mod- 

TO BRUTALITY ern man is a long way from his cave man 

ancestors. But every once in a while he still 
needs to blow off steam in the release of pent-up primitive in- 
stincts and emotions. Hence we recognize that football games, and 
sports in general, are valuable in sublimating, among other things, 
the deep-seated desire to fight. 

The point might be argued that a comprehensive program of 
physical education produces enough of the needed sublimation. 
We aren't quite sure. So theoretically we have a kindly word to 
Bay for razoo and the battle royal. At least razoo has organized 
and strait-jacketed such interclass war as does exist to the degree 
that it does not take on some of the raw forms once exhibited by 
the spirit of old "Aggie." But practically, there are at least 
two danger spots in razoo. 

The first is the danger of the encouragement of continued 
war-like spirit. Whereas in theory we ought to simmer down 
after blowing off steam, in practice one blow-off may prepare the 
way for another, one black eye may lead to a reciprocation. The 
second defect is the fact that the average freshman, whatever 
his previous good intentions about Lhe seriousness of higher edu- 
cation, when confronted with a continued array of such things 
as rope-pulling, serenading, pond-parties, cap-snatching and razoo. 
is inclined to get "movie ideas" of college life. 

We have heard comments from several intelligent people, 
none of them sissies, each expressing a similar wish — that razoo, 
or at least the battle royal, ought to have been allowed to die 
a natural death last year. This would seem to indicate that con- 
tinuation of razoo ought to be weighed. Apparently the Senate 
has already considered and weighed, for they issued an announce- 
ment that freshman attendance would be checked at razoo. This 
is plain bullying. Fie on the Senate for trying to scare the freshmen 
into producing a revival fervor to uphold a tradition. True tradi- 
tions stand on their own merits. 

If we are to keep the traditional tussle, let it be a friendly 
one. Sanity should indicate that a tradition kept at the expense 
of broken bones, brutality, and the encouragement of rowdy 
behavior is not worth keeping.

We have often been asked by woi- 
ried parents why their respective 
charges, once they come to college-, 
lose their proper names and au' 
known to the student body as "tJea 
con" or "Firewater." The paren;.; 
would like to know how such an im- 
pressive, important name such as 
Kermit Franklin DuPontus, III, d"- 
generates into such an epithet as 
"Morsel." We do not know the answer. 

Pondering long over the deriva- 
tion of "Firewater," we have only 
become more bewildered when we 
discover that the same "Fire- 
water" is also known as "Legs." 
Were we to investigate the origin 
of "Firewater," we would get 
nowhere. For we'd have to inter- 
view any number of distractions 
such as "Jeep," "Stinky," "Bog- 
gle." "Lightening." "Bombshell," 
"C.rendell," "Jockey." "Prince," 
"Flea Bite," "Tanker," "Bull," 
"Chipmunk," "Fish Heels," "Rab- 
ble," "Glamour Pants." and 
"Oswald." Not to speak of those 
names unfit for print, yet prob- 
ably more popular than the afore- 

We do know, however, that when 
"Firewater" graduates, he'll discard 
his college name, take on the name 
given to him by his parents, 
a dignified alumnus, and will writs 
threatening letters to the college 
coaches signing his epistles, Mr. So 
UMJ So, HI. "Firewater" will beconv. 
a name of the past until one day •■ 
the future, a prof will be beard say 
ing to a meek freshman, "So you're 
'Firewater's' little squirt." 

Success Story 

Headers last year will remember 
our drive for a position on a con - 
mittee. Our drive has been sueces.-. 
ful. We have made a committee. Now 
all we have to do is start working 
for that new suit. 

But according to Vincent, who 
is an authority on such things, 
and who is, by the way, sporting 
the latest things in tweeds, I 
made the wrong committee. I 
should have made a committee 
my freshman or sophomore year, 
said Vincent, and then worked up 
to the more lucrative po it ions. 
However, continued the tweeds, 
if you work hard enough, there 
is a chance that you be 
able to get a suit at Roxy's 
Clothing Store on the Inpay- 
ment plan. They are goo.l buys, 
too. Two pairs of pants, a base- 
ball hat and a picture of Jack 
Armstrong thrown in. 

Date Bureau 

We have been asked what has hap- 
pened to the date bureau. Aecordii* 
to Irving, the bureau is still in ope' 
at ion and is open for business, lie 
asks that the students not be so basn- 
ful, for the bureau is set up to over- 
come shyness and the like. He has 
asked us to announce that the Inno- 
cence Quotient of the individual- v. ii' 
not be taken. It's more fun .x.i 
knowing, he says. 




At the present time, as we are 
embarking upon a new college year, 
it seems in place to reiterate thu 
history of the educational objectives 
of Massachusetts State College. S 
it is that we reprint excerpts from 
the first column Ten Minutes Wit! 
the President, which appeared in the 
Dec. 8, 1938 issue of the Collegian. 
In this column he says: "In answer 
to any question as to whether or not 
educational institutions are meeting 
the needs of the people, we must 
understand the development in oui 
colleges and universities over the 
years. The privately endowed institu- 
tions were all developed with the idea 
of educating young people for cer- 
tain professions such as the minis- 
try, law, medicine. With such objec- 
tives, the curriculum in these tchoA* 
was decidedly classical in character. 
Thus the whole structure of educa- 
tion in New England was founded 
on rather narrow conceptions of ed- 
ucation — an education of the few 
Later came the development of en- 
gineering schools which based ihei' - 
curriculum on liberal arts, oi were 
largely strictly vocational schools of- 
fering highly specialized work in «ho 
fields of engineering. 

"The introduction of land-grant col- 
leges brought a new type of college 
into existence; a type which was 
quite different from the classical or 
engineering schools. 

"While the objectives of the lur.d- 
grant colleges were to give an educa- 
tion to the young people both :ii ait-; 
and engineering, many of these C'>! 
'<?gcs, because of the leadership unci; 
if them, felt that agriculture was 
heir principal objective. Certain other 
ind-grant colleges such as the West- 



Members of Amherst Community Concert Association Privileged 

to Hear Six Outside Performances in Pittsfield and 

Greenfield — Four Presentations Here 

ern universities, expanded both 
agriculture and engineering, th j 
aehievening a balance. 

"When a part of the land-gra 
funds were given to M. I. T. to eat 
ry on engineering, the State Colle '. 
offrial . were convinced that agricui 
ture should be developed to wla 
might be termed an exclusion of an 
chanic arts. Finally when a pre 
dent was installed who was a gra<k 
ate of another land-grant college, t 
State College was developed to e. 
tremes in the field of agriculture. 

"The tendency during the past lev 
years is to bring the college to 
more perfect balance between t, 
mechanic arts and agriculture. Toda 
a balance has been achieved. The c 
lege not only offers excellent advai 
tages in agriculture, but offers ex 
eel lent opportunities to the youn, 
men and women of the state in gei 
eral engineering, the liberal art- 
and particularly the sciences. 

"Such a history and study of tn. 
differences of colleges as I have brief 
ly outlined will show that the Stat. 
College is the only college in th. 
Commonwealth which is designa 
primarily to serve the young peopi- 
of the Commonwealth. Almost evei 
one of the fine privately endow* 
institutions are national, rather thai 
State, in character. 

"In closing, let me say that it i 
my strong feeling that the trustee 
faculty, students, and friends of th 
college should emphasize that no 
only is this college offering a tyjx 
of education needed in thi i state, bu 
it is the only college in Massachuset 1 
which is giving its entire efforts I 
the young people of the Commoi 
we- lth.

Con voi ntion 


by Jackie 

Have you heard that the instructor 
of a certain Home Economics class 
has to use a policeman's whistle in ' 
order to bring peace, order and quiet 
t> the laboratory. It seems that 
women are getting noiser and noiser. 

After watching Simmons play foot- 
ball we have decided we can forgive 
him his slipping pants. Suggestions— 
a pair of suspenders or development 
of a waist line. 

A certain coed received a 
letter from the W. S. 6, A. in- 
viting her to come in an hour 
earlier every evening for a week. 
She was joined in her trailing 
and bemoaning by a freshman 
who said, "Why don't you tell 
them you don't want to belong 
to their organization anymore?". 

And yet another freshman story — 
The Paper Boy. Because this story 
is unusually complicated we shall 
point out a few things which should 
be kept in mind. First, no men are 
allowed on the second or third floors 
of the Abbey. Secondly, the paper 
boy delivers papers on Sunday morn- 
ing in the office and the girls come 
down and order the paper they desire. 
Thirdly, a telephone system is used 
to inform the girls of telephone calls 
or callers. 

Ho Hum, now to go on with the 
story. (The point is already lost). 
Well, one sunday morning the paper 
boy arrived and the girl in the office 
telephoned the third floor and an-

State College is still the leading 

contributor to the Amherst Commun- 

iy Concert Association according to 

i>oric Alviani. The '36 workers sold 

275 tickets to the students here. 

Mr. Alviani feels that, although 
the drive was a definite success, the 
future could be brighter. As yet he 
is not able to divulge the names of 
the artists who will follow Bartlett 
and Robertson. 

Four Concerts 

The Association will present four 
concerts including the duo-piano team 
of Bartlett and Robinson. Two other 
groups, the Stradivarius String Quar- 
tet and the Balinese Dancers with 
Devi Dja and his native orchestra, 
are under consideration. 

Outside Concerto 

The members of the Amherst Com- 
munity Concert Association will be 
privileged this winter to attend two 
exceptional series of concerts outside 
of Amherst at no further cost, and 
no other formality than presenting 
their own membership card at the 
door. In Pittsfield they will be able 
to attend concerts by Pinza and Reth- 
berg, soloists of the Metropolitan 
Opera; The Cleveland Symphony Or- 
chestra, and Gieseking, one of the 
world's greatest pianists. These con- 
certs will take place on January 16, 
February 12 and February 27 re- 

In Greenfield the Amherst mem- 
bers will be able to attend concerts 
by Joseph Knitzer, violinist; on Feb- 
ruary 19, The Motzart Boys Choir; 
April 4, and Wilbur Evans, baritone.

I'm passing on to you. Both fro 
the point of instrumental solo.;, a

let of discs sets a new liigh. 

Probably the best of the best 
is Les Brown with a two side 
winner in "Ciribiribin" and "Oh 
Marie." Both sides swing out in 
a danceable medium tempo that 
features a full broad sax sec- 
tion and a sharp brass that bites 
like the old Goodman brass used

'"Marie" side features a vocal 
solo with band chorus on the 
answers. All in all, the best 
disc in a long, long time. (Blue-

Another pleasant surprise was

Victor H. Cahalane, State '24, has 
just presented a very interesting at ti- 
de entitled "Deer of the World." in 
the October issue of the National 
Geographic Magazine. 

Cahalane, following his graduation 
from Massachusetts in 1924, received 
his Master of Forestry degree at Yali 
Since then he has been employed foi 
several years in forest and wild-life 
conservation work. At present Mr. 
Cahalane is Acting Director of tne 
Wildlife Division of the National Park 

Mr. Cahalane's present article in 
the Geographic presents an interest 
ing study, with twenty excellent illus- 
trations, of the life and habits of deer 
throughout the world. Besides this 
piece, Mr. Cahalane — who has done 
a good deal of writing on well-known 
and little-known mammals of North 
America — has had two articles printed 
in the Saturday Evening Post. In 
the July 23, 1938 issue of the Post, 
he has one entitled "Don't Feed the 
Bears"; this article contains much 
valuable information regarding the 
proper treatment towards anu precau- 
tions regarding bears. 

In the April 29, 1939 issue of the 
same publication, his article "Swat 
Song" is presented. In this Mr. 
Cahalane tells the story, in a delight- 
fully readable fashion, of the trump- 
eter swan's fight for existence.

It is his ball. ". . . 2, 3, 4, Hip!" 
The ball shoots to him — and he

After the game the coach gives 
Joe the fourth degree. 

"You've been slowly going to the

Our hero hangs his head. "I'll con-

it happen?" 

"We went to the movies, and she

"Propaganda is the stuff of which 
civilization is made," declared teach- 
er, lecturer, and author Peter H. 
Odegard of Amherst College in his 
address at last week's Convocation 
on the subject "Propaganda, Its Na- 
ture, Uses, and Abuses." 
Not All Had 

Continually driving home the fal- 
lacy of labelling all propaganda as 
not only "bad" but "false," Professor 
Odegard pointed out the impossibility 
of moulding opinions of large groups 
of people without using the "Inten- 
tionally vague phraseology" of prop- 
aganda to appeal to their individual 
"hopes, fears and dreams." That 
propaganda is "evil" is a relatively 
new idea, said the speaker. Its an- 
cient history, he continued is not 
only acceptable but honorable, its 
evil connotation being derived from 
the fact that it was used as an instru- 
ment of conquest during the World 

Love, Too 

"Even a love letter is propaganda," 
he stated. 

Jocularly he presented several pop- 
ular definitions of propaganda, among 
them: "Propaganda is the dissemina- 
tion of 'isms' which we do not be- 

He then described the dualism of 
man's nature, — his logical and emo- 
tional sides — and defined propaganda 
as "The use of symbols of communi- 
cation to rationalize the visceral 
(emotional) hanger* of human be- 


"Propaganda is in reality a use- 
ful instrument," he contended, ex- 
plaining that any expression of emo- 
tional action is in itself propaganda 
because it cannot be based upon dem- 
onstrable facts. "The more scientific 
a term becomes, the less useful it 
become! for making social unity out 
of diversity," he concluded, "Who 
ever heard of men giving their lives 
for dear old pi r squared."

that until further notice we shall hu\e

To extend the resume of last

Tradition of Mountain Day to be Renewed 

This Year; Mount Tom Scene of Activity 


Hit makv Donahue 

.Mountain Day — a campus holiday 
— a chance to climb a mountain — a 
foremost tradition of the college — i.- 
to be in the very near future. Seniors 
and Juniors have been on Mounta ; n 
Day before, so they are either remnt 
iscent or vaguely indifferent about i'. 
Sophomores, whose unconventional 
first year leaves them as unacquainted 
with the custom as the present Fre.-h- 
men, wait with resigned curiosity to 
tee what it is all about. And the 
Freshmen — ah yes, the Freshmen! — 
consider it an excellent plan begu: 
for their especial entertainment, an,! 
they will probably be the first one:- 
up the mountain and the last ones 

What It Is 

Hut perhaps the same Freshmen 
are not too clear as to what Moun- 
tain Day is. It seems that on one 
of these pleasant fall days — obviously 
not intended for studying- 

Mountain Day, most Juniors are only 
too glad to give personal accounts 
of the last one. Some are a bit dis- 
illusioned about the affair — "You 
stand in line for hours and then there 
aren't enough hot dogs." Yet another, 
in defense of the provided refresh 
Bients, admits having had 1*1 glasses 
of cider and having felt considerably 
frolicsome thereafter. Most of tb° 
girls confine their remarks to the 
sentimental possibilities of Mountain 
Day. It sems that the higher atmoev 
phere makes the college men unu- 
sually attentive — new conquests are 
made and forgotten the next day, the 
moon rises, and so on far into the 
night. (At this point, we can see the 
freshman girls beginning to wonder 
what to wear and how to climb a 
mountain gracefully, and, frankly, we 
wish them luck. )

When there are no overly vocifer- 
ous frosh in the room, it is a surpris- 
ing condition that usually there is 
little protest against talking in the 
room with music on. We might be 
tempted to conclude that the purpose 
of the room was to provide a place 
to overstrain our tongues, which 
surely, as some of our well-know, 
campus figures will attest, have suf- 
ficient exercise. But we can defer.;' 
this apparent inattention to the mUS- 
ic. All those in a disputatious ruood 
come to the music room. 

Looking over the record book 
again, we are pained to see the 
conspicuous lack of quartets, 
trios, and quintets (except one) 
requested. This exception is nat- 
urally the only Benny Goodman 
selection we have. Yes. it's clas- 
sical. If our inferences from this 
are true, apparently what con- 
tributes greatly to the populari- 
ty of a piece is the fact that it 
makes a great deal of noise. 
A good many loud— not noisy— se- 
lections are of the best. And likewis •, 
some of the gentler ones have little 
merit. But it takes from one end <>l

Typically New England is the ex- 
hibition of photographs of the Biat 
tleboro Camera Club which is being 
displayed this week at the Goodell 

Library, Snow scenes and lurches in 

spring are the most popular subjects, 
with the Vermont atmosphere sug- 
gested by several maple sugar time 

Snow Sc9MM 

The air of sameness that all snow 
scenes have is somewhat alleviated 
in these photographs hy very excel- 
lent technical work. Skillful handling 
of light and shadow in the picture 
Drift* and Urennu in particular gives 
an undeniable individuality to a rath- 
er overworked subject. Also, there is 
a refreshing spontaneity, an unplan- 
ned lok which contributes to the de- 
sired effect of barrenness and bleak 

The same effort to capture one 
mood is seen in Earl M. Robert's 
November Sunset. We see the sunset 
through wind-broken clouds that hold 
a threat of storm intensified by the 
single leafiest tree in the foreground. 
Intelligent elimination of distracting 
detail makes this picture one of the 

most effective of the group. 
. I ppealing 
Probably the most appealing of the 
group is Antiquated by Harris, a 

sympathetic study of an old work- 
horse. The treatment is straight-for- 
ward and shows a feeling for por- 
traiture. Depth and warmth, accen 
tuated by sepia toning, is another 

tribute to the superior technique of 
the members of this club. 

There are only two still lifes in 
the group but both are well done. 
G. A. Eaton's has a dark sombre tone 
and shallow treatment reminiscent of 

Rembrandt's, the dull highlights on 

the copper pitcher glowing OUt of deep 
shadow. O. EI. Evans' still life is 
ijuite the opposite in theme. Clear 
direct lighting and accuracy of detail 
give to the china in the picture a 
delicacy and lucidity, and to the pho- 
tograph as a whole an almost com- 
mercial perfection. 

Careful attention to contrast and 
placement redeem April and Water 

Lilies from mediocracy. Even so, they 
are more admirable for their techni- 
cal merits than for any innate orig- 
inality that they possess. Another of 
the same sort is Mux 'I'm, which, 
though rather too obviously posed, is 
made interesting by the use of back 
lighting, making the figures semi 

The general impression of the 
group is that members of this club 
have technique to spare with only or- 
dinary subjects to spend it on.

To the Editor: 

It seems a shame that the hearty 
and sincere welcome given to the 
Stockbridge students by President 
Baker should be overshadowed by a 
childish and unpleasantly condescend- 
ing editorial in the Collegian — an edi- 
torial that purported to be in itself 
a welcome. 

President Baker welcomed us as a 
part of the large family here on 
campus, saying that he hoped our 
stay would be pleasant and worth- 
while. He gave us a truly warm and 
genuine welcome. On the morrow, 
however, we were to receive another 
greeting, the greeting of our State I 
College comrades, voiced by the edi- 
tor of the Collegian— a greeting 
which passed judgment on us before 
we had even had time to register as 
students. Is it not natural that we 
should feel hurt, having been con- 
demned without fair trial? 

In this period of unrest and strife 
in the world, it would seem that the 
editor could have been more tactful. 
Might he not have made his welcome 
a plea for closer unity between the 
two groups, rather than an ill-man- 
nered gesture of disapproval and con- 
tempt, bound to breed unhappiness 
and distrust? Our two student bodies 
have enjoyed cooperation and pleasant 
relations in the past. Stockbridge 
students take active part with State 
students in the college band, orches- 
tra, outing club, and various other 
organizations which have welcomed 
our membership. 

Our student body subscribes to 
nearly one-fourth of the Collegian 
circulation, our group subscription 
having been voted several years ago. 
In return we have had the privilege 
of contributing a news column each 
year, a privilege for which we are 
grateful. We like very much to stay 
in touch with the activities of the col- 
lege, and through the Collegian we 
are able to do so. If, however, it is 
to be the policy of the paper to carry

By Kay Tully 
The Massachusetts Collegian has a

try which many students do not real- 
ize. Our campus is not the only place 

alumni have paid subscriptions, and 
copies of the Collegian are sent to 
them, the great majority of whom are 
in New England. In addition, we have 
one subscription in Hollywood, no 
less — and one to San Gabriel, Cali- 

that keeps informed about our cam- f°rnia. There are several subscr.p- 

pus through the Collegian-its in-\ tions in Connecticut, New York, and 

formation goes, literally, all over the New Jersey-and at least one copy

Florida; Oglethorpe, George; Atlan-

If you can't see eye to eye with the psychology instructor 
don't be alarmed, sophomores, for you're probably sane. A test 
was given to three hundred sophomores at the University of Cali- 
fornia, and the same test was given to a similar number of 
professional psychologists throughout the nation. 

One of the questions was whether the reader believes 
that the great American public is fit to operate a demo- 
cratic form of government. Sixty-two per cent of the 
students believe that 31% or more of the population was 
incapable, while 11% maintain that three out of four per- 
sons are incapable of intelligent participation in the oper- 
ation of a democracy.

Last Saturday's football game held 
more than the usual significance o f 
two teams striving to come acros- 
,\ith a win. The game marked the 
last time that a Bowdoin eleven weu'.d 
angle with the Statesmen. A twelve 
. ur old rivalry was concluded then, 
at Alumni Field, for the Maroon 
gives way to neighboring Amher t 
t'ollege on the Polar Hears' schedule 
fur next fall. 

The series began not so long 
ago in 1927, when the two teams 
battled all afternoon with 
neither side gaining the advan- 
tage in a nothing to nothing 

Since that first scoreless game, the 
Statesmen have been the underdog 
in practically every contest, for in 
the course of the competition Bow- 
doin College has come out on top 
in nine games while the Marooon 
won but two contests.

AM this week, the University 
of Connecticut football team is 
spending its practice sessions 
working on pass defense. The 
Nutmeggers showed a lack of 
pass coverage in their games, 
and, according to indications thus 
far, they have not made much 
improvement. Coupled with Con- 
necticut's poor pass defense is 
Ben Freitas' remarkable throw- 
ing arm and Don Allan's pretty- 
passing for the Statesmen.

The increase in enrollment in American colleges has 
dropped off sharply, according to results of a question- 
naire conducted by the New York Times. Student 
registrations have gone up only nine-tenths of one per 
cent in eighty-eight colleges and universities, represent- 
ing one-third of the total number of students in "institu- 
tions of higher learning in the country," participating in 
the questionnaire. Last year the increase was 4.8%, and 
in 1937 it was 3.9^. 

The colleges in the east seem to have suffered most for thei- 
enrollment rose only .28^ as against 5.2% in 1938. 

One of the reasons which The Times suggests hinges on "thr 
widespread discussion of the last year or two of the value of 
college education and the life-lag required to complete it while 

non-college youth is already out in the world."

sports writers' predictions. The physi- 
cal and moral spirit of the States- 
men is running high and they are 
confident that they can turn the 
tables on Conn. State and come 
through with a victory. 

Big Team 

Conn. State will field a powerful 
squad that is well-versed in its fun- 
damentals. Their team will be big, 
fast and smart. They employ a sys- 
tem very similar to that of Minne- 
sota's, they have a smart defense, 
and they like to pass. If State goes 
out in front, the fans can look for 
a wide open game from the Nutmeg- 
gers. Their captain, Peterson is a 
smart end who may bother the State 
attack considerably. In lionnelly, the 
Nutmeggers have a triple-threat ha I; 
who will probably give the State root- 
ers some anxious moments. He is an 
excellent passer and kicker and is a 
fast, tricky runner. Conn. State lost 
a close one to Wesleyan by virtue of 
a couple of costly fumbles and should 
be pruned to make up for those mis- 
takes this week. Their team has just 
enough veterans to form the nucleus 
for a well-balanced eleven. The Nut- 
meggers are weak at left tackle, and

suing studies that do not have a di- 
rect bearing on the student's life

We are making a bid for harmony

Editor** Note: 

The nostrils of the Collegian edi- 
torial board are not offended by ag- 
riculture or by the Stockbridge 

We welcome the Stockbridge bid 
for harmony and want to point out 
that this paper has gone its half-way 
in giving Stockbridge fair coverage 
of news events. Writers Kosakowski, 
Howard, and Nichols might be inter- 
ested to know that the Collegian does 
not single out their school for criti- 
cism or praise, but treats every cam- 
pus matter on its merits. 

We might also correct an impres- 
sion or two that was left by the 
above letter: The Collegian did not 

pass judgment on Stockbridge Stu- 
dents before they had time to reg- 
ister, it merely criticised one phase 
of the School life. Although we are 
glad to have the Stockbridge School 
subscribe to this paper and receive 
in return, a news column, we can't 
help but add that the main reason 
that the Stockbridge School sub- 
scribes to this paper, is that it has 
not the funds to publish a paper of 
its own. We want to warn Stockbridge 
subscribers that subscriptions to the 
Collegian do not control an editorial 
policy and that this paper will con- 
tinue to criticize or praise any policy 
or activity of either Stockbridge or 
State that seems important enough 
for mention. 

One of the prime objectives of an 
editorial is to arouse interest in a 
certain subject. We feel that this let- 
ter, itself, justifies the Colhguui edi- 
torial on Stockbridge, and that in the 
future, perhaps, both student bodies 
will better understand each other. 
We had no intention of an "ill-man- 
nered gesture of disapproval and con- 
tempt" and a careful reading of the 
editorial of last week will show that 
such a conclusion was read into the 

We have felt, in past years, that the 
Collegian reporter for Stockbridge 
School has never adequately repre- 
sented his School in our columns. 
Thus we suggest that in view of the 
writers' interest in Stockbridge, and 

unquestioned literary ability, that 
they be assigned to cover Stockbridg*

Failure of German Republic 

Permitted Rise of 

Fatal Nazism 



Depends on an International 

Security Too Strong 

To Break 

"So long as one nation can gain 
advantage through taking what it 
wants hy force or threat of force, 
there will he leaders who counsel 
such a policy," said Prof. Theodore 
Caldwell, in his address at convo- 
cation today. Prof. Caldwell, of the 
Massachusetts State College History 
Department, ipoke today on the "Un- 
derlying Causes of the Present Euro- 
pean War." 

Prof. Caldwell stated that there 
was little point in discussing the im- 
mediate causes of the present war. 
"Clearly Poland was attacked by 
the German forces." 

"But," Professor Caldwell said, 
"if there had been a different gov- 
ernment in Germany, a government 
with different aims and ideals, per- 
haps there would have been no war." 

The coming into power of the 
Nazi party, followed the failure of 
the German Republic set up after 
the World War I. Prof. Caldwell 
called the failure of the republic 
a tragedy and divided it into three

Conducted Tours Successful 
—Perfect Weather Adds 

to Enjoyment 

Clear weather, thirty hus-loads of 
enthusiastic students, ten different 
groups of hikers in the afternoon, and 
group singing by fire-light marked 
another successful Mountain Day held 
this year at the Mount Tom Reser- 

A typical New England autumn 
day contributed to the enjoyment of 
hundreds of State College and 
Stockbridge students. 

A large number participated in 

the "Mountaineering" hike to the 
summit under the leadership of Dick 
Elliot. Other hikes were: "Hawk 
migration" — Bill Nutting; "Insects" 
—Dick Elberfeld; "Nature Trail"— 
Evelyn Bergstrom; "Geology of the 
Connecticut Valley" — Goat Peak — 
Priscilla Jacobs; "Mt. Tom Nature 
guide service" — Ken Pike; "Pall col- 
ors and landscape" — Elmer Smith; 
"Trees"— R. Staples; "Fall Flowers" 
— Eleanore Vassos; "Combined Bot- 
any and Geology hike" — Profs. Clark 
and Gordon. These activities, besides 
the softball and other games in the 
afternoon, were planned by Nature 
Guide Students and the Outing Club.

Author and Lecturer Presents 

Views on European and 
Domestic Situation 

Speaking from i wealth of authen- 
tic information, Dr. Sherwood Eddy, 
author and lecturer in an address 
Tuesday afternoon in the Memorial 
Ruilding, gave an analysis of the 
present crisis in Europe ami the 
position of the United States. 

He reiterated the idea that the 
United States should not enter the 
war abroad unless the democracies, 

Prance and England, were definitely 

losing, and then not unless guaran 
tees were given that there would 
subsequently come into existence a 

world peace organisation which would 

be more successful than the present 
LeagUS Of Nations. 

"The fact that U. S. ships are in 
the war /.one is more important than 
the repeal of the Embargo Act," hf 
said. He did, however, favor the ra 

peal of that net.

WON'T A week ago we received a letter from the Christian 
TALK Science Monitor asking this paper's views on the neu- 
trality question. For about ten or fifteen minutes we 
played with the idea of answering the Monitor's letter and telling 
them our opinion. But a second thought showed us that whatever 
we had to say would be merely quoting some national source 
and would not reflect the opinion of the college. 

In reading other college newspapers we have found that other 
staffs do not view this subject in the same way. Perhaps our 
neighbor colleges are right in discussing these national questions, 
for the thoughts uppermost in the minds of college students 
should certainly be reflected in their newspapers. But we have 
reached what might be called the saturation point. Too much 
has been said on the neutrality issue. Neither this paper nor any 
college newspaper can contribute anything but confusion to the 

The Collegia* feels that student opinion can be better form- 
ed by those more familiar with the situation than ourselves. The 
daily press is the source that should be used for information and 
opinions on the war. Although the war and the United States 
foreign policy are vitally affecting students today, it is the func- 
tion of this paper to keep students informed of what goes on 
here on the State College campus. 

We brought this matter up because a number of students 
and more than one member of the faculty, as well as the Monitor, 
wanted us to state our views on neutrality. Our opinion is formed 
by the New York Times or Herald-Tribune, so we suggest that 
anyone interested in this paper's views turn to the original source. 

• * * 

VOTE The most important position that will be voted upon by 
the students two weeks from now will be that of president 
of the Mltior class. This officer is, perhaps, the only class official 
whose job is more than an honorary one. This week and next 
week students will be asked to vote, first for the nominating com- 
mittee members, and then for the class officers and it should be i 
the duty of every student to make out a ballot. 

We mentioned the senior class officers because they will have 
to be chosen by a senior class that does not attend convocation. 
This will make it hard for many seniors to cast their vote, but in 
view of the fact that the man that they elect as their president 
will be in charge of all their commencement activities, it will be 
for their own best interests if they vote. 

At times we have questioned the need of officers for the 
lower classes as their officers have nothing to do but pose annual- 
ly for the yearbook. The only tasks that class officers could do, 

would be to act as members of dance committee and we elect men 
for those positions, 

Now that the Senate has arranged a complicated system 
of voting for officers of the various classes, Isn't it time they put 
their heads together and figured out what the officers should do?

An excerpt from the 1980 rushing 
rules for Massachusetts State Uni- 
versity fraternities. 

"We of the Interfraternity Coun- 
cil, believing in a policy of fair play 
and enlightened understanding, do 
herewith and hereafter present the 
rules and regulations which shall 
govern the rushing of freshmen by 
the fraternities at the U. of M. dur- 
ing the year 1980. 

1. No freshman shall be allowed 
in any fraternity house except on 
Sundays between the hours of 12:55 
and 1 :05 p.m., this rule to be in 
force throughout the entire week of 

a). On this visit (to insure fair 
play) each freshman shall be ac- 
companied by two members of each 
of the other fraternities. 

b). At such time, refreshments 
shall be limited to one ice-cream cone, 
one napkin (paper), one glass of wat- 
er, and one toothpick per frosh. 

c). After this visit, the fraternity 
treasurers shall make out and file 
with the Interfraternity Council, an 
itemized report of expenditures for 
each rushee entertained; said re- 
port to contain the rushee's age, his 
physical weaknesses, the number of 
his dependents, and the treasurer's 
Social Security number. 

2. No fraternity member shall 
come within two hundred yards of the 
freshman monastery— Thatcher Hall. 

3. No upperclassman shall speak to 
any freshman other than to greet 
him with the handbook-required 


4. Any underclassman noticed star- 
ing with deliberate and obvious in- 
tent at any house for a period long- 
er than 2 minutes and 42 seconds, 
shall be court-marshalled and tried 
by the interfraternity council. 

5. Any fraternity member suspect- 
ed of having supplied a freshman 
which a date shall be forced to go 
out with the girl himself. 

Life History of a Joke 
(With apologies to College Humor 
for mutiliation of a once-good gag) 

1. Birth: Freshman thinks it up 
in class; laughs heartily, waking up 
two fraternity men in the hack row. 

2. Age 40 minutes: Freshman tells 
it to senior. 

3. Age 41 minutes: Senior says: 
"Yes, it's good, but I've heard it 

4. Age 2 hours, 41 minutes: Senior 
tells it at fraternity dinner table — 
is fined $2.00. 

5. Age 2 days Senior hands joke in 
to the campus rag as his own. 

6. Age 6 months: Editor of campus 
rag is hard-pressed for material,

Each fall during the first week in 
October, there is held at Crawford 
Notch Hotel, New Hampshire, an 
Educational Conference known as the 
October Conference. This Conference 
is under the general direction of an 
informal committee made up largely 
of the Commissioners of Education 
of the several New England States, 
and those attending the Conference 
represent largely the high schools 
and colleges of New England. 

For several years Massachusetts 
State has been represented at the 
Conference by its President, the Dean, 
and Professor Welles of the Depart- 
ment of Education, though it is sel- 
dom that all three attend in any 
one year. This year it was my par- 
ticular privilege to attend; and the 
meetings were very worth while for 
me both because they gave unusual 
opportunity to meet superintendents 
and principals of high schools and 
because of the program, which was 
very informal in character. 

Vocational Work 

The particular session of the pro- 
gram this year which seemed to be 
unusually worth while was given up 
to a discussion of counselling and 
guidance of students and organiza- 
tion of vocational work. There was 

considerable discussion of the increas- 
ing need for better vocational work 
in the secondary schools and there 
were special references made to the 
place of vocational work in a college 
program. It has been apparent in 
some of our state-supported colleges 
and universities throughout the coun- 
try that those responsible for the 
student programs have been leaning 
a little too far in the direction of 
more practical as against what might 
be called the basic or theoretical train- 
ing. In other words, there has been 
a tendency on the part of certain col- 
leges to make their programs so 
practical that graduates would be 
prepared only for very definite lines 
of work and a immediate living. 
Trend Unfortunate 
It has seemed to me that this trend 
is unfortunate and that there should 
be a sound balance between the basic 
and theoretical, and the practical. It 
is essential, of course, that men and 
women as they are graduated from 
our colleges and universities shall be 
prepared to make a living, but it is 
unfortunate when the making of the 
living is put before soundness of 
education and an education that will 
lead on to larger fields with broader 
opportunities for a fullness and rich 
ness of living. 



Dance of the Ages" is to be Presented Wednesday in Bowker 
Auditorium — Social Union Sponsors Program by Famous 
American Dancer — Well Known Here 


As the first of a fine schedule of 
tractions, the Social Union Com- 
ittee presents Ted Shawn and his 
lancers Wednesday evening. This 
unous American troupe will offer 
heir equally famous "Dance of the 
iges," a choreographic picture of 
uman development. 

Shawn is well known here, having 
,-rformed many times in Amherst 
it both colleges. 

The "Dance of the Ages" has four 
livisions, and the movement quality 
f the four sections is elemental — 
hat is, the movement qualities of 
ire, water, earth (which includes 
(illogical process, vegetable and 
nimal life) and air are the mo- 
lvating inspirations of the choreo- 
raphy. Also each of the four move- 
iciits represents a stage of devel- 
pment in human society. The Fire 
ection exemplifies humanity at a 
liana of Tribal culture, and Shawn's 
olo role is its archetype, the Sham- 
n (medicine-man, witch-doctor or 
oodoo-magician) and priest. The 
\ ater section assumes the level of 
City-state, and Shawn's solo has

fcortends something "Beyond Democ-

The Bay State Revue, to be held 
November 17, is a variety show spon- 
sored by The Roister Doisters but 
one open to all. It is intended pri- 
marily to give an oportunity to men 
and women who have special enter- 
tainment talent or who for other rea- 
sons miss participation in musical 
and dramatic organizations. It is de- 
pendent, however, upon the more 
gifted members of these organiza- 
tions as well. 


There is a need of: vocal and in- 
strumental soloists, musical skits, 
magic, monologues, dramatic skits, 
solo and group dancing, boxing, fenc- 
ing. It is especially desirable that 
there be two or three co-ed numbers. 
The offerings are organized, direct- 
ed and rehearsed by the participants 
themselves, but should have a gen- 
eral approval by the committee in

I never thought I'd live to see it 
happen, but it has! Another royal 
head of swing has fallen into the 
dust of public opinion. Artie Shaw, 
who caught up Goodman's crown, 
scepter, and ermine robes on the 
first bounce, not too long ago, has 
learned that being king isn't all it's 
cracked up to be. The first signs 
of revolt have come from the prov- 
inces in the north. 

Cleveland, we learn has a sub- 
versive S.P.A.S. (Society for the 
Prevention of Artie Shaw). Its 
members are initiated by serving 
corn on Shaw platters, tossing 
others into Lake Erie, and eat- 
ing others. This thing which 
started as a joke a few months 
ago, has grown into a large body 
of swing enthusiasts, musicians, 
and record collectors. They feel 
he has no style, or tone, and that 
he is grossly over-rated. Other 
branches are mushrooming up 
in New York, Maryland, and other 
Eastern States. 


The Why of all this is very per- 
tinent. As a staunch supporter an i 
a loyal follower of the house of 
Shaw this entire business grieves me 
very much. But, though as the

KtrUKI LAi LKILilLL ogeneoui collection of Medici prints. 

j All are reproductions in color of fine 
paintings, some of which WOtt first 
shown in the collections which the 
Medici family made possible through 
their artistic taste and liberal spend- 
ings. The reproductions shown in 

this exhibition are reasonably 

priced, and may lie purchased 

through Mr. Robert Carpenter at 

Wilder Hall. 

Of the many Italian painters of 
merit to whom the Medici gave di- 
rect support and patronage, only Bot- 
ticellia and Raphael are given recog- 
nition in this collection. Botticelli, 

who with Leonardo da Vinci and 
Michelangelo belonged to the fa- 
mous Florentine school of the Ren- 
aissance, is represented hy his Ma- 
donna. It combines the exactness 
and poetic sense of many of his 
works. The nymph-like quality hy 
which his women, such as Simonetta 
in the Birth of Venus, are usually 
characterized is overshowed by the 
maternal qualities of the figure. 


Also in the exhibition are four dif- 
ferent Madonnas by Raphael, whose 
paintings serve as excellent examples 
of the work of the Umbrian School 
of the Italian Renaissance. The hu- 
man charm and grace of his figures 
has made him a popular painter 
throughout the centuries since his 
death. His paintings also illustrate 
the attention of painters to complete 
landscape backgrounds — a factor 
which many of the period utilized 
in portraying scenes of their own 
childhood or youth. 

Turner, the celebrated English 
painter of the early 19th century, 
is characteristically represented by 
several Venetian paintings. One of 
these especially - Grand Canal, Ven- 
ice — has the misty, ethereal quali- 
ties for which Turner is noted, com- 
bined with almost photographic ac- 
curacy. The sort of distilled golden 
is said to have dis-

Two State seniors, Dorothy Mor- 
ley and Marty Suomi, were among 
the representatives from about 15 

other colleges receiving a four weeks' 
summer fellowship awarded jointly 
to juniors by the Danforth Founda- 
tion and the Ralston Purina Mills. 

The two students studied for two 
weeks in St. Louis at the Purina Mills 
and spent two weeks at a leader 
ship training camp at Shelby, Michi- 
gan. LInder expert guidance they 
studied the problems of research lab- 
oratories, department stores, and 
institutional and hotel management. 

The two weeks spent at the Am- 
erican Youth Foundation leadership 
Training Camp were designed for 
personal development and the lead- 
ership courses there were taught by 
educators, ministers, and profession- 
al men. 

The fellowships are usually award- 
ed every year to juniors majoring 
in agriculture and home economics, 
but this year there will be a chance 
for one freshman to win a half, if 
not a complete fellowship. The fel- 
lowships are intended to assist stu- 
dents "to enlarge horizons, to broad- 
en contacts, to make decisions, and 
to find places in life." Among other 
young people, the State representa- 
tives enjoyed study and recreation 
under the Danforth philosophy of 
four-fold development — social, men- 
tal, physical, and spiritual.

From there the progression 
generally went for rather a long 
period to Tschaikowsky. The in- 
Buence of this period was never 
lost. (Sounds just like a history 
of lit course). 

Then we have the stage that most 
of the habitues of the present music-

they think they know music. With a 
pseudo-reticent aggressiveness they 
tell all they know to romantic young 
music lovers. They listen with breath 
less interest to the mere mention el

they hear the magic word "Hach."

P.ut after a while, when they have

six or SO Brandenburg Concertos of 
the revered Hach, they don't exactly 
yawn upon hearing many repetitions.

Sloof esthetes. The string quartets 
seem the next logical step. A supe- 
rior, indulgent air is assumed when- 
ever any of the more callow ask for 
the three B's. Yes. they're all right, 
hut there is no pure art; the soul of 
the music is not quite so well ex- 
pressed. The majority of the pieces 
are so crass, so obvious, so lacking 
m delicacy. But the quartets, ah. there 
vou have the height of art.

Incoming freshmen of most colleges 
and universities throughout the coun- 
try may be recognized by the small 
skull caps which cover their heads 
during the first few weeks of their 
stay on campus. This hat-wearing 
custom is not meant to cause any ill 
feeling or embarrassment on the part 
of anyone concerned; it is merely a 
means by which freshmen may be dis- 
tinguished and recognized by their fel- 
low classmates, and by upper class- 
men. Freshmen should be only too 
glad to do such a little thing as wear 
a hat which is, to say the least, mas- 
culine; and which will be such an im- 
portant means of their making the 
acquaintance of their campus asso- 

guests. Among the guests were 
Avery Barrett, S'24, and Len Parkin- 
son, S'29, of the college staff. Refresh- 
ments of hot pop corn, new cider 
and doughnuts were served. 

On Monday evening, a regular busi- 
ness meeting was held. Freshmen 
were voted on and initiation plans 
were discussed. 

Alpha Tau Gamma extends a 
friendly invitation to all freshmen to 
become acquainted with the fraternity 
by calling frequently at the house. A 
special invitation is given to those

By Kay Tully 

The fall styles this year are really 
something — but we fear that State 
coeds of whom one says "She was a 
nice girl twenty pounds ago" will 
never look their best this year. Of 
course hips are in, because the 1939 
autumn silhouette requires (oh joy) 
rounded hips — but, alas, also a very 
small waistline a la the gay Nine- 


The newest trends, according to 
Paris and Amherst experts, are in- 
deed reminiscent of 1890, and con- 
sidering that was the Merry Widow 
Age, Things Are Looking Up, as 
Suzy Coed would say. Dressy 
clothes are more elegant, with full 
short skirts, tiny waistlines, tight- 
fitting bodices, and Bustles — natural 
or otherwise. Heavy gold jewelry 
and old-fashioned lockets, too, are 
a must-have for this fall, to com- 
plete the S. S. and G. illusion. 

The new evening clothes are what 
coeds have dreamed about for years. 
The gowns are dramatic, yet demure, 
very full-skirted affairs with off- 
the-shoulder lines and very low de- 
colletages — the kind that inevitably 
brings forth a "That's a smooth 
dress you haven't got on" from your 
— friends. 


For sport wear plaids, particular- 
ly when combined with black vel- 
veteen, are more popular than ever 
with willowy coeds. The new plaid 
wool over-the-shoulder bags are 
grand, too — if you don't mind feel- 
ing like a darn fool Boy Scout, or 

No Snowballs 

a Scotchman carrying his lunch. 
Mademoiselle shows a popular one 
with extra space for cigarettes, pad 
and pencil. 

The hats are, we fear, slightly 
horrible. The postillions look like 
squashed peach baskets upside down, 
but if you can wear the things, the 
final effect is very smooth. And the 
girls have stolen something else 
from Esquire — it's grabardine pork 
pies this year. The bustle-back hats 
with wide ribbon streamers floating 
along behind should endow State co- 
eds with the desired air of demure- 
ness not usually evident on campus. 
We only hope the Amherst Theatre 
will not have to resort to signs, as 
in days of yore, saying "Will all 
ladies please be considerate enough 
to remove their hats?" And snoods 
— hairnets to youse guys — are won- 
derful because you really don't have 
to comb your hair. One current fash- 
ion magazine even suggests filling 
the back of a snood with roses for 
evening wear, but we figure that's 
not only an extreme measure and an 
awful bother, but it's darned ex- 
pensive for the Light of your Life. 

Odds and Ends 

Then there are lots of odds and 
ends in fall fashion notes — socks 
to your knees, fireman red acces- 
sories, charm bracelets always, long 
cardigans, uncut strips of name tapes 
for hair ribbons, gold chains for 
sweaters, moss green for everything! 

And about those new corsets, we 
ain't talking. Bustles — yes; but 
bones— NEVER!

"From the middle of November 
to the first of April, it was so cold 
that the children could never make 
snowballs," was the surprising state- 
ment of Stephen Hamilton '31, na- 
tive of New Salem and a former 
State student in his lecture on Lab- 
rador at the monthly meeting of 
the Amherst Nature Club Tuesday 
evening. Illustrating his talk with 
his own paintings of scenes in Lab- 
rador, Mr. Hamilton described the 
seasonal phenomena, the inhabitants, 
and the living conditions as he saw 
them during his nine months stay 
in the little village of North West 
River, last year. 

Artist. Too 

His paintings, recently on exhibit 

in the Memorial Building, establish 

Mr. Hamilton as a master of cold, 

severe winter scenes with marked 

ability in the portrayal of trees 
and shadows. He also displayed scen- 
ic pencil sketches and chalk studies 
of the northern lights. Twice during 
the year, Mr. Hamilton was fortu- 
nate enough to see displays of lights, 
pure crimson in color, which tinged 
the snow to a blood red. "This was 
so unusually spectacular," he de- 
clared, "that even the people who 
lived there came outside to look." 


Economic conditions in Labrador 
vary from the relatively comfortable 
and secure status of a thrifty trapper 
to that of the poor fisherman, sum- 
mer transient from Newfoundland, 
who barely exists on the meager in- 
come from his trade. The native 
food supply, consisting mainly of 
fish and game and produce grown 
in the short summer season, is sup- 
plemented by commercial goods sold 
at exorbitant prices. "A box of corn- 
flakes cost sixty cents," he explain- 

Continuing with a description of 

his experiences, Mr. Hamilton said 

that during the cold season, with

almost Completely filled with veteran.-. 
To date, the booters from the City of 
Homes have lost one tilt to Court land 
State Teachers College and have de- 
feated Army by the score of 4 to 2. 

According to Coach Hrigg's, State's 
chances for victory are quite small. 
Last year the State booters held 
Springfield to a tie, but this season 
there is a dubius chance of duplicating 
the feat, because Springfield has an 
almost identical team. 

However, the Brigg-adiers have de- 
veloped a great deal since the begin- 
ing of the season and according to 
Briggs have a fine spirit. The fray 
with the Nutmeggers proved that the 
State team does pack a scoring punch 
which might possibly give Spring- 
field considerable trouble.

Last Minute Donnelly-Cimino Pass 
Gives Conn. U. 7-6 Win Over State 

In a contest capped by three min- 
utes of the most exciting football 
seen at Alumni Field in many a day, 
a gallant Maroon eleven dropped a 
heart-breaking 7 to 6 decision to Conn. 
U. Badly outplayed during the first 
three periods, the locals got off their 
defensive horse late in the last quarter 
to uncork a hair-raising 76-yard drive 
to a touchdown. In the last minute, 
however, an inspired Nutmeg team 
drove to a score via two Donnelly 
passes which covered 66 yards. Cimino 
scored the marker and then proceeded 
to plunge the State stands into de- 
spair by booting the extra point. 

State missed a scoring opportunity 
in the early minutes of the game 
when Freitas recovered a Mitchell 
fumble on Conn's 39. A 5 yard off- 
tackle thrust by Jim Bullock and a 
Freitas to Bullock aerial carried down 
• the 12. Here, however, the attack 
'ailed, as Evans was thrown for a 
8 yard loss on an end run and 
passes went incomplete. Capt. 
lilasko's fourth down placement kick 
wide by inches. From this time 
until the late minutes of the game, 
locals were forced to wage a 
tly defensive battle as Mitchell's 
■titer plunges and Donnelly's off- 
kle thrusts produced first down 
r first down for the visitors. Al- 
'iigh the Maroon attack was com- 
ply stymied by a hard-charging 
nnectlcut lino which averaged 198 
inds, their defense inside the 20- 
rd liii" was impregnable. 

yards respectively, combined with 
shorter runs by Evans, Bullock and 
Irzyk brought the ball to a first down 
on the Conn 14. By this time the 
State linemen were convincing the 
opposition of their Jekyl-Hyde com- 
plexes by picking to pieces the Conn 
frontier that had been out-charging 
them all afternoon. An end run by 
Evans advanced the ball from the 14 
to the 7, and a buck by Bullock 
brought it to the 5. From this point, 
Benny Freitas banged over to a touch- 
down, giving four of the enemy rides 
on various parts of his anatomy. 
Blasko's try for point was blocked. 

Statistics on the game belie the 7-6 
score. Conn gained the edge in first 
downs, 14 to 6; in yards gained by- 
rushing, 200 to 110; in yards gained 
on passes, 77 to 20. The expected 
leak in the Nutmegger's pass defense 
failed to develop in eight attempted 
heaves. Freitas was again State's 
best offensive bet with Bullock play- 
ing a hard game. Ralph Simmons 
was his usual play-wrecking self until 
he retired with a pulled leg muscle 
in the last quarter. O'Connell, Blasko 
nnd Malcolm also got more than their 
share "f tackles.

evenly matched with Norwich af- 
ter suffering a 17-7 setback at the 
hands of Trinity. Close as the game 
seems, the Engineers ought to have 
the edge with their patting attack 
which functioned well against State 
last year. 

A Rensselaer ball team which is 
finally winning games takes the field 
against Coast Guard Academy this 
Saturday. R. P. I. trounced Roches-

ways. The margin of victory appears

Ralph Bunk, who has been coming 
up fast, will probably be running up 
with Putney and Kimball who fin- 
ished third in last Saturday's race. 

The two teams are fairly evenly 
matched and there is every indica- 
tion of a close score in the meet. Al- 
though State has its strongest team 
in a few seasons, what it does 
against the Tech stars on the flat 
Franklin Field course remains to be 
seen. The confident Statesmen are 
out to avenge last year's 26-84 de- 
feat and give the impression that 
their worst races are behind them.

Striding across the wind-swept 
cross-country line finish hand in 
hand, visiting Northeastern's Car- 
penter and Ivockerby spread-eagled 
the field last Saturday to lead North- 
eastern to a surprisingly close 24- 
N victory over State in the spark- 
ling time of 23:20. 

Captain Chet Putney of the Ma- 
roon, tied for third place with 
sophomore Bill Kimball, despite a 
pair of painfully weakened ankles, 
to lead the Statesmen to the tape. 
The Huskies' superior team strength, 
however swung the balance their 
way as they grabbed fifth, seventh 
and ninth positions to better the total 
amassed by State's sixth place, 
Bunk; eighth place Hayward; and 
tenth man Kennedy. 

The crisp day furnished nearly 
ideal conditions as Slater slammed 
ahead at the gun to lead the Har- 
riers across the campus through 
Lovers' l.ane. Turning up Proxy's 
Hill, Carpenter and Lockerby slid 
into a lead that they steadily increas- 
ed to 126 yards at the end of the 
four mile chase. 

Coach Derby, obviously encourag- 
ed by the ability and spirit shown 
by his harriers against the highly 
touted Huskies predicted that in- 

gives State a 
fair chance against Tech this Sat- 

down to a 2 to 1 defeat last Saturday 
on Alumni Field. The two teams 
played on even terms without a score 
for three periods. With seven min- 
utes of the last petted gone Buckley 
broke through the Nutmeggers de- 
fense to score State's first goal. As 
the game progressed it looked like 
a State victory within the regular 
game time, but Captain Humphries 
of the Connecticut team sank the 
equalizer with only one minute of 
playing time left. Time ran out 
without further scoring and overtime! 
were necessary. The first overtime 
passed without any scoring and the 
second overtime had only one minute 
and a half of playing time left wl en 

Buckley booted his game-winning 

The. playing of the State team was 
noticeably better in this game than 
it has been in previous games. The 
defense showed to a much better ad- 
vantage than it has heretofore. 
Smith, in the goal, and Jacobek, at 
right fullback proved to be towers on 
the defense while Buckley flashed in 
the forward lino. Langworthy, who 
appeared in his first game showed 
up well and should be heard from 
as an able replacement at center for- 
ward. Captain Humphries did yeo- 
man work for the nutmci'gcrs and 
scored their lone goal. The game was 
marked by exceptionally smart defen- 
sive work as can be seen by the close- 
ness of the double-overtime contest. 

Fans who like their football tilled 
with forward passes, laterals, fakes, 
and all types of razzle-dazzle plays 
will look forward with eager antici- 
pation too the Maroon-Rhode Island 
game this Saturday at Kingston. 
Coach Keaney, as can be remembered 
from his basketball teams, bases his 
chances of victory on a daredevil, 
high-scoring offense. 

In spite of last week's heart-break- 
ing defeat, the Statesmen will prob- 
ably be in fine fettle for the tilt with 
Rhode Island State, according to 
Coach Caraway. The Maroon's last 
Quarter touchdown drive against 
Conn. State showed a united, powerful 
State team which by the use of 
straight orthodox football would 
almost be a match for Rhode Island's 
style of pigskin playing. 

This season Coach Keaney has 
eleven lettermen of a team which 
last year defeated State to the tune 
Of l!>-0. The Rams will base their 
offense around Warner Keaney, 2U5- 
1b. triple-threat fullback. In the 
snapperbaek position will be Pace, one 
of the best centers in New Eng- 
land. And of course, Duke Ahbruzzi 
at left half who scored two touch- 
downs in five minutes against the 
Carawaymen last year is no small 

To date, the Rams have won 
against Brooklyn and have gone 
down to defeat against Brown of 
Providence. However, their unortho- 
dox system of offense has developed 
in every game as shown by their 
recent 40 to victory over Brooklyn. 

According to Coach Caraway, the 
tilt will be tough and rugged, with 
a great possibility of breaks for 
either side because of the Ram's 
spread-out offense. Old Man Weather 
will also play an important part in 
the fray, because a slippery ball would 
sadly handicap the Ram's offense. 

The starting lineup for the game 
will probably be the same as Nut- 
megger tilt, with Captain Blasko 
remaining at his tackle post and a 
backfield composed of Sophomores 
Freitas, Bullock and Evans, and vet- 
eran Al Arzyk at quarter.

tries with deep-seated democratic 
roots, floored Germany. "For the sec- 
ond time in a decade the middle class 
was faced with ruin. These con- 
ditions provided the hot-bed in which 
Nazism grew. A leader had appear- 
ed in Adolf Hitler." 

Unless soon checked the Nazi ideal 
could have had only one result, the 
war which exists today. 

Fundamental Cause 
Prof. Caldwell stated that the 
most fundamental cause of the 
present conflict was the lack of con- 
structive statesmanship at nearly all 
the decisive moments of the post- 
war period. 

"In November 1935 the English 
Conservative Party came out squarely 
in favor of upholding the League. 
Baldwin made speeches in which 
he declared that Britain foreign 
policy was founded upon the League 
of Nations." When the election had 
been won the conservative party 
turned about face and disregarded 
the League. 

According to Prof. Caldwell "In 
the succession of crises that occurred 
between 1986 and 1939 the essen- 
tial nature of French and British 
policy did not change. There were 
a succession of surrender to aggres- 
sion with no real guarantees as to 
where agression might stop . . . The 
tempo of war increased . . ." 

The seisure of Czechoslovakia and 
demands on Poland shocked the Brit- 

ish Government into a new policy. 
Prof. Caldwell concluded by say- 
ing that "There can be no perman- 
ent peace under the present system j 
of international anarchy. The hope 
for peace lies rather in a system of 
international security so firmly held 
that to break it will be to invite dis- 


iod of six or eight weeks in the 
fall, and jumping and diving head 
first into deep snow drifts, a favor- 
ite pastime of schoolboys. Bear 
hunting is also popular in the win- 
ter when the bears are so "dopey" 
that they can be poked out of their 
holes with a stick and killed with an 
axe. (Usually!) 

In concluding his talk, Mr. Hamil- 
ton answered numerous questions of- 
fered by the interested audience.

a maximum coldness of forty-two 
degrees below zero, he usually wore 
a lightweight, windproof "dicky," or 
parka, over a heavy woolen sweater, 
and on his feet, woolen socks, white 
duck leggings and deerskin mocas- 
sins. It is common for the women 
to vie with one another to make the 
fanciest leggings for their menfolk. 


The chief means of travel are by 
dog teams and snowshoes — an av- 
erage trip on the latter extending 
sometimes sixty miles a day. In de- 
scribing the winter camps used by 
the trapper*, Mr. Hamilton said that 
a tent was set up on snow well tread 
down, the sides hanked with snow and 
the floor made of six or eight inches 
of balsam bows. Heat for a very 
comfortable interior was furnished 
by a small, homemade stove. Usual- 
ly, only one blanket was carried on 
the trips.

Hamilton explained, are numerous 
and include ice-skating, for a per-

Carnival Committee Rebudgeta 

Funds For an Enlarged 


Money was rehudgeted to the win- 
ter sports committee of the 1940 
Winter Carnival to take care of an 
enlarged winter sports program now 

being arranged by Roger Hrown '-10, 
Arthur Noyes '40, carnival chairman 
announced today. 

It was decided by the carnival com- 
mittee during a meeting Tuesday 
night to rebudget funds to the win- 
ter sports section in order to "put 
more winter in the winter carnival." 
In the past, the winter sports sec 
tion of the carnival was second in 
importance to the winter carnival 
ball. The 1940 committee feels that 
winter sports should be of equal 
importance, if not of more import 
ance, than the Mall. Many of the 
skiing, skating, and tobogganing en- 
thusiasts argued last year that the 
winter carnival ended on Friday 

night. That will not be the case this 


House Dances 

The Carnival committee also an 

nounced that fraternity house dances 
would be held this year on Saturday 

night following the Social Union pro- 
gram featuring Carl Sandburg. Last 
year, an informal dance was held, but 
was not nearly as popular as were 
the house dances of previous years.

WELCOME BACK— The maroon

are again with us, as are the upper- 
classmen of the college, and we of

With the daily press and the radio 
almost forcing us to fix our atten- 
tion upon a vast number of current 
incidents and accidents and even 
anecdotes, there are days when it 
seems almost impossible to think 
quietly and clearly because of the 
confusion about us. The past few 
weeks we have heard so much of the 
war in Europe, of the neutrality dis- 
cussion in Congress and of other 
subjects of strife and controversy 
that I have almost wished that for 
a week we might have the first section 

merely located on the campus, Mass.! of the paper left at the publishers

We would hate to question Dr. Philip Gamble's

the State College's slaughter night, 
but wish it to be known as the Mass. 
State Razoo night, not as a Stock- 
bridge University tradition. Another 
thing, we wish the "rude mechanicals" 
would stop decorating our cars, and 
stealing the hub caps. 

If the Mass. State men wish to 
be known as S. U.'.s, then we re- 
quest that they show better man- 
ners in convocation, in the the- 
atre, and in the classroom 

fortunate that the pressure upon us 
today is likely to cause us to forget 
what the race has learned as a result 
of long past experiences. 

Not Much News 

After all, there isn't much new 
in the way of human experience. 
i.*any of the experiments we are try- 
ing today in government have been 
tried before. In fact, many of the 
apparent facts which seem to have 
been discovered recently through ac- 

If the Mass. State men want to say tivities of State and Federal Bur- 

sity, we only ask that they act as 
if they did. All in all, welcome to this 
campus, and feel at home — if you

thoughts to belittle sound research, 
because such research was never 
more needed than today.

College economics professor is well qualified to talk that they go to Stockbridge Univer- least, centuries or^ ages ago. In say 
on subjects in his field. But we do question his code of fair play. 

Two nights ago Dr. Gamble was one of the speakers at the 
forum of the International Relations Club on the subject of "The 
War and American Neutrality." After making an about face on 
the stand he took in a similar meeting last year, Dr. Gamble took 
an economic time out, in his discussion, to libel the Collegian. 
Using as example! the fact that an article he wrote for the Col- 
legian, early in the year, had a printer's error that changed the 
word "pacific" to "specific," and that the Collegian editorial of 

Futility Emphasized 

The futility of this rushing abojt 
on the part of people with what ap-j 
pear to be ideas both new and won- 
derful was emphasized to me a sin 
time ago when I had the opportun 
to look over a series of photographs, 
now in the possession of Dr. Elmei 
D. Merrill of the Arnold Arboretum.; 
taken during the so-called Archibald 
Expedition although financed from 
itical reasons this recent expedition 
was called Netherlands — Americ.i: 
Expedition but for several po 
this country. Transportation was \>\ 
hydroplane, and a number of the 
photographs taken from the air. 
showed the agriculture of a prinii 
tive people who are even today still 
living in the Stone Age. These people 
are terracing their fields in such i 
way as to prevent erosion and B 
carrying on crop rotations whicr 
some might well think were the re- 
sult of investigation of the past few- 
years in some one of the American* 
states. These activities of the people 
living in a stone age in preventine 
soil erosion was recalled by the re- 
ceipt this morning of a publication 
from the United States Department 
of Agriculture on the "Prevention 
and Control of Gullies." This pubh 
cation shows the use of brush in) 
damming small gullies and othei 
practices which probably have bee: 
followed by these backward people: 
of New Guinea for centuries. And 
again in making these comparisons 
there is no thought of questioning the 
value of what is being done in this 
country today to protect and con- 
serve our agricultural soils. Rathe' 
it is my thought to emphasize thu 
importance of profiting by the ex- 
perience of those who have gone be- 
fore us. Perhaps we could learn i 
little more from the experience (ri 
people in the past if there was l 
little less confusion in the way ir 
which we are living in the present 



last Week referred to the New York Time.8 and Herald Tribune as: ate people: Remarks to be made to 

good sources of information on the present neutrality question, 
Dr. Gamble was able to draw the conclusion that this paper is an 
unreliable sheet run by the college's unintelligent. 

Dr. Gamble had a few other remarks along the same general 
lines and all leading to the same general conclusion. Nothing con- 
structive was offered, and it took no little stretch of the imagin- 
ation to tie his Collegian libel in with the subject the audience 
had supposed he would talk about 

a friend who is proudly displaying a 
new suit or dress — "Think the style 
will ever come back?" . . . or . . . 
"It's good material, why not have it 
made into a suit" . . . or . . . "Are 
you good friends with a rag dealer" 
. . . or . . . "Your brother's pretty 
big, isn't he."

The funniest thing is that all 
this advertizing is not only free, 
but the adverli/er is pa d for it, 
and I do mean paid! This month's 
Esquire carries a story that Artie 
Shaw, working on Hlurbirds, has 
just contracted for one thousand 
dollars per record, and to gross 
not less than fifty thorsa 1 d dol- 
lars for the season. On top of 
this, he's to collect a royalty of a 
nickel on every disc of his own 
arran g e »e »i and composition. It 
all looks rather good from where 
I'm sitting. 

The actual men in the band, don't 
do bad for the proletariat either. Ex- 
cepting nationally known soloists, the 
kind that college students call out by 
name whenever they tak<- ■ typed solo, 
the boys usually get from thirty five 
to fifty dollars a record, including a 
rehearsal. That isn't t«>o bad for a 
day's work, especially when added on 
to the ordinary salary.

Pianist, Twins Steal Show 

From Shawn Choreographers 


For the past few weeks you have 
been hearing a good deal about '•de- 
velopments," "communications," and 
-letters," and have been asked to be 
patient and to wait. At last our "com- 
munications" have come to an end, 
and we shall, probably next week, 
be able to start OS our proper func- 
tion-reviewing new releases of rec- 

Toward the middle of the school 
year a series of tests there will be 
presented by the psychology depart- 
ment. Among these will be a musi- 
cal aptitude test. To all those of you 
who "think you know music" I sug- 
gest that the test be taken. It does 
not pretend to examine the extent of 
your musical knowledge, but it will 
tell you whether you are fitted to re- 
ceive certain impressions from the 
mugic that you do hear than others. 
It is graded OO * percentile basis of 

all taking it throughout the coun- 
try. Go ahead, take the test. Cer- 
tain individuals especially, who rath- 
er pride themselves on their knowl- 
edge of music, may find that the 
aeutenesfl of their musical senses is 
not as great as their "knowledge*' 
would Indicate- 

There lias arisen among the music- 
minded public a strong controversy. 
It deals with the innate leaning of 
most individuals toward a certain 
type of music. Using the typical il- 
lustration Of the man brought up 
on a desert island, without any pos- 
sibility of contact with music of any- 
kind, the question is as follows. I p- 
on hearing music with the classical 
type of harmonic and melodic rela- 
tions, and the modernistic type, which 
will he like better, if at all? Or, to 
be perfectly general, which will of- 
fer him least displeasure? The clas- 
sicists say that his innate taste in 
music will incline him toward the 
Classic type. The others say that he 
will be influenced by his conditioning. 
That is, if he hears music of both 
kinds for a period of time, he will 
like that music which he heard while 
in a mood or condition most pleasur- 
able to him. If he is eating ice cream 
while listening to Stawinsky, he will 
thenceforth prefer that kind of music 
to any other, unless later on he is ad- 
versely conditioned to it. We take the 
latter stand. Argue if you want; 
we're always available. 

Granted that certain selections are 
preferred t<> others, a point of rea- 
sonable procedure arises. It is bad 
policy to refer, in a general column, 
to specific individuals. But we con- 
sider that a case like this merits 
such tactics. There is a selection that 
has been asked for in the music room 
at least .-even times a week since the 
music room opened. It is a long one, 
and as such would be more difficult to 
replace than a shorter one. Purely 
from a basis of riot wearing the se- 
lection out, we ask that it be re- 
quested less often by these individ- 
uals. For example, on one afternoon, 
it was asked for three times. It takes 
almost three qttarlen of an hour to 
play it. We'll mention the piece, so 
that any doubt will be dispelled as 
to whom we mean. It is the Grieg 
Concerto for piano. No offense meant, 
but have some regard for the well 
being of the collection. This was men- 
tioned because we heard that there 
was a definite intention to continue 
the requests for it until it was as 
nearly memorized as possible. Have 
a heart, — . 

For the benefit of the potential rec- 
ord buying reader, we are going to 
post on the wall of the music room 
a list of the monthly releases of new 
records. There Is an agency in Am- 
herst which will take orders for 
any of these, and if you can't get 
the records you want there, you will 

certainly find that the Northampton 

agency will be able fully to respond 

to your needs. 
The opinion has been expressed 

that the column of a few weeks ago 
was not a valid sampling of the pref- 
erences of music room goers. So, in 
Order that a mote valid one be made, 
we an- going to have a list of the 

more popular composers, and will 

have a chance to get opinions per 

Another annual appearance of Ted 
Shawn's Modern Dance last night 
aroused another wave of the usual 
hearty response for this relatively 
new art-form. 

The frosh and sophomores stared 
with open mouths at Maestro Shawn 
and his choreographers, walked back 
to respective fraternities and dormi- 
tories, tore their clothes off, bared 
their chests, and, romping around in 
their shorts and pink toes, performed 
queer muscular gyrations giving their 
interpretations of "Firewater" and 
"Hot Air" a la Shawn. 

In a corner of some fraternity chap 



show were: the clever group effect 
of fire symbolism in Fir*; the uhx- 
gando in Meeker's piano accompani- 
ment to the Further Water Patterns 
and Ascent In/ Evaporation to suggest 
the effect of some of the moods of 
the sea; the humorous wrestling pan- 
tonine in Sport; the pantomine of the 
horse-shoeing in The Villnj/e Crafts- 
man; Shawn's jitterbug dance in 
Ward Heeler which was timely and 
farcical considering the hillbilly ca ^' ' reached a satisfactory conclusion 

Fraternity rushing is still in full swing here at Massachusetts 
State, but in most of the other colleges with whom we exchang 
papers this matter has long since been taken care of, and has

The more outstanding parts of the

What of the freshmen who are the center of all this 
activity. The Text of the Lowell Textile Institute gave 
their freshmen this thought for guidance. "Fraternities 
can do inestimahle good for an institution and its stu- 
dents. In your hands alone lies the choice. Do not he lead 
into joining any group hy the bright pictures painted for 
you by any present. Consider the members, the accom- 
plishments, and the aims of each fraternity, and then 
.... decide for yourself." 

The importance of making a good choice on the part of the 
freshmen cannot be over-emphasized. In the middle of Pledge

"Religion, in the past, has taught 
man to transfer responsibility to 
God," declared Dr. Frederick Eliot, 
President of the American Unitar- 
ian Society in his address at last 
Sunday's Vespers Service. This 
should no longer be so, he pointed out, 
because "The primary business of 
religion is to give us confidence in 
ourselves, to teach us to stand on 
our own feet, to make us see that we 
already possess all we need to save 
ourselves and the world." 

He stated that leadership is not 
nearly so essential as the realiza- 
tion that the power of the living God 
is within each individual, each 
church, each family.

Program For Event November 

18 Outlined in Article 

From Committee 

Within the next week, a letter 
from President Hugh P. Baker will 
inform the dad of each student of 
Massachusetts State College that the 
annual Dads' Day will be held on 
November 18, and will urge the dads 
to attend. 

An exceptionally fine program has 
been prepared this year by co-chair- 
men Jean Davis and George Atwater. 
Beside the usual military show, foot- 
ball game, and fraternity and soror- 
ity luncheon and dinners, the com- 
mittee has planned one new feature, 
and has revamped and improved an 
old one. For the first time, planned 
tours will be conducted to selected 
classrooms, where the dads will be 
able to see classes in action. Also, 
the evening entertainment will be 
slightly different — and better. The 
committee plans to combine the best 
acts of the Bay State Revue and In- 
terfraternity Skit Competition and 
present them on the same program. 
The W. S. G. A. has also been asked 
to prepare a skit for the show. Thus, 
the dads will be given the best show 

Another new Dads' Day feature is 
the fact that this will be the first ex- 
clusively Dads' Day. In former years, 
there has been no provision for any 
sort of mothers' Day — for the moth- 
ers of all students — so many mothers 
attended Dads' Day. However, the 
Senate, after long and careful in- 
vestigation, has recently decided that 
there will be a Mothers' Day next 
spring. This, of course, eliminates 
the necessity for mothers to attend 
Dads' Day, although it does not pro- 
hibit them from coming. 

The committee feels that Dads' Day 

Our campus is a friendly one made 
so by the traditions brought down 
to us by those who were here on 
campus before us. Let us continue 
to carry on so humane and civil a 
custom. Say 'Hi'. Greet your fellow 
campus colleagues when you cross 
their paths. Say Hi. Don't be snob- 
bish. We are all here with the same 
intention, namely; that of obtaining 
an education, each in his own indi- 
vidual course of study. We are all 
equals; we have no class distinction. 
Each of us has an important part to 
play in maintaining the traditional 
spirit of friendliness which has al- 
ways been prevailing at the Mass. 
State campus. A small amount of 
cooperation is necessary to carry on 
this great work. With full under- 
standing of the benefits which we 
derive from our efforts we shall not 
hesitate to do our individual duty in 
keeping the spirit of friendliness 
flaming on the campus. Simply say 

their cheer leaders for the first o 
the season. There was a brief practic* 
session held to acquaint the new stu 
dents with the school cheers. Th 
leaders are: John J. Burke '40, Mil 
ton M. Fortune '41, Philip H. Patoi 

The convocation speaker for thi.- 
week was David Sharp, the new Stu 
dent Religious Director of this col 
lege. Mr. Sharp was introduced by 
the Reverend Raymond Waser of th 
Congregational Church, Amherst.

the breaks and have used them

it, the ones that produce touch-

,,,!> luck the State team has gotten 

the way of touchdowns has been 

bad luck. 

Witness the Bowdoin game of sev- 

,al weeks ago. State held the ball

to be the winning touchdown. But

Had breaks" stepped in, blew his 

iistle, and called the play back for 


The crowning stroke of ill for- 
tune and the bitterest pill of all 
to swallow occurred during the 
Khode Island contest. The States- 
men had advanced the ball into 
enemy territory and there was 
time enough for one or two more 
plays. Another pass was tossed 
but the potential receiver was 
tackled before he caught the ball 
— a clear case of interference! A 
penalty was called on the play, 
but the field judge was waving to 
a friend in the grandstand and 
missed everything, including the 
fact that time should have been 
called on the play. Had he been 
on his toes, State would have had 
one more opportunity to score 
and win the ball game! 
It is too bad that the swimming 
team does not have its own practice 
periods. Swimming, more than any 
other sport, needs plenty of prac- 
tice. The men have to work out al- 
most every day in the week in order 
to keep in trim, but under the pres- 
nt conditions most of the natators 
have to be content with ten and fif- 
teen minutes of practice at a time. 

Seeking to bounce back into the 
win column, Coach Larry Briggs 
varsity soccer team will travel to 
Hartford to meet the Trinity Col- 
lege booters. To date the Trinity 
team is an unknown quantity as far 
as the State coaching staff is con- 

According to bits of news that have 
seeped in the Hilltoppers will be 
sure to field a stronger team than 
they had last year. They have seven 
lettermen back from last year to 
form the nucleus of their varsity. 
Coach McCloud believes that he has 
developed a creditable defense and 
now has to worry about his offensive 
strength. In fact, Trinity was virtual- 
ly swamped by the Worcester Tech 
booters last week 5 to 2. The chief 
reason given for this defeat was the 
weakness of the offense. 

Both of the Trinity goals were 
scored by the center forward, Bur- 
rage, and he seems to be the chief 
scoring threat for the Hartford team. 
If the State backs can keep Burrage 
bottled up, and the forwards can 
break through the defense and cap- 
italize on these breaks, State should 
return to the winning side of the 
ledger at the expense of Trinity. The 
State team is in good condition with 
the exception of Langworthy who was 
injured in the Springfield game. The 
boys, led by Captain Brown, will 
go down to Hartford this weekend 
confident of victory, and should pull 
this one out.

Field Goal in Last Minute of Play 
Sets Statesmen Down in 23-20 Loss 

Most important on this Saturday's 
schedule of State's opponents is the 
clash between a high-powered Wes- 
leyan eleven and State's traditional 
rival, Amherst. The Jen"men, fresh 
from a .T2-0 win over Rochester, 
haven't yet been really tested for 
pass defense. In his present Cardi- 
nal line-up, Coach Jack Blott has two 
experienced pass-receiving ends and 
at least two backfield men who are 
potential heavers. It will be inter- 
esting and valuable to State to see 
how the Jeflfmen fare against Wes- 
leyan's well-geared aerial work. 

Put down a scoreless tie for the 
Tufts-Husky tilt last Saturday and 
also your money on the Royal Purple 
of Williams to take Tufts this week- 
end. The score-keeper at the A. I. C- 
Coast Guard battle should get dizzy 
putting up markers in A. I. C.'s fav- 
or. For, remember, Russ Peterson's 
men were the ones to break St. An- 
slem's record of nary a defeat over 
I a period of three years. 

Rensselaer is still pulling surprises 
lout of the bag as the victory over 
Coast Guard will testify. This week 
the Engineers take on Union Col- 
lege and ought to take the game by 
a one goal margin. 


Not in the least disheartened by 
his proteges poor showing in the 
M. I. T. meet, Coach Llwellyn Der- 
by is doing his utmost to bolster up 
the stocks of his crosscountry team 

for the run with w. P. I. at Worces- 
ter this Saturday. With the finish 
scheduled to appear between the 
halves of the football game, the cross- 
country run will take place almost 
entirely over macadam and extreme- 
ly hilly country. 

To date, State has won most of the 
meets in a long series of rivalries 
with the Engineers from Worcester. 
In 1988, the Techmen defeated the 
Maroon harriers by one point to spoil 
a clean slate for the Derbymen. How- 
ever, since 1915 W. P. I. has only 
been victorious in three meets. Last 
year the score stood 10-41 in favor 
of State. 

At W. P. I., freshmen are eligible 
for varsity sports and this year Tech 
has an excellent crop of fledgling 
runners. It is even rumored that sev- 
eral of the yearlings are faster than 
Dunklee, veteran cross-country ace. 

Coach Derby has high hopes for 
Captain Putney who showed up the 
best for the Maroon in the recent 
M. I. T. meet in spite of taped 
ankles while the other varsity har- 
riers will endeavor to place the Ma- 
roon on the short end of the score

State Hooters Are Set Rack by 

Veteran Club — Langworthy 

is Injured 

Faced with another of those story- 
i'""k finishes which are becoming a 
ahit with their opponents, Eb Car- 
away's State eleven was forced to 
ncede a 2.'1 to 20 decision to Kean- 
- Rhode Island Rams in general, 
ind to Duke Abruzzi and Warner 
Keaney in particular. Abruzzi was a 
thorn in the Maroon side all after- 
being practically the entire 
Rhody offense in himself as witness- 
ed by the fact that he scored all three 
' uchdowns besides playing the ma.j- 
i<ile in getting the ball into pay- 
off territory. Keaney, in the face of 
1 strong gale, several onrushing Ma- 
""iis, and heartfelt ill-wishes from 
rooters, proceeded to kick a 
itiful field goal from State's 36 
1 line, to win the game in the 
two minutes. 
Rhody started out as though they 
e prepared to annihilate the Ma- 
s, going Cut yards to a score in 
list three minutes. Abruzzi went 
from the 1(1 after 'ne and Keane\

yards by State, and the other of 86

The statistics indicate that the loc- 
als deserved a tie, and indeed such 
was the opinion voiced by Coach 
Keaney of the Rams. State edged 
Rhody in first downs, 16 to 13, and 
in yards gained on passes, 91 to 49. 
The Rough Rhoders prevailed in 
yards by rushing, 235 to 810. Freitas 
continued to act and play the part of 
an experienced big-time back, yet 
he was almost overshadowed by 
junior Art Cohen, who reeled olT 
several long gains in addition to

Coach Derby's cross-country har- 
riers found the prospective engineers 
from M. I. T. too much of an obstacle 
to overcome, with a result that the 
Statesmen had a second taste of de- 
feat last Saturday running the Pos- 
ton course at Franklin Park. Drop- 
ping the second meet in as many 
starts, the Maroon outfit was able to 

l place only one man among the first 

The first to finish for the Derbymen 

, was Captain Putney who came in 
third with a time of 24:08 with a 
badly weakened right ankle. Although 
Putney has been suffering from ankle 
trouble since the start of the season, 
• piie would never have discovered this 
fact from the way he ran the gruel- 
ling course against the Engineers 
from Cambridge.

mark, luit limv of Tech forged ahead 
at this point. Two miles further along 
the route found the rest of the run- 
ner- far behind Cow and his team- 
mate Crosby who both opened up 
with a big lead at the two and a half 
mile marker, a lead which they never 
gave up. 

The Teeh men were never pushed 
during the entire race and won with 
a decisive score of 18-42. Crosby of

turning in a time of 22:58. The run-

Rattling subbornly against a more 
experienced and stronger Springfield 
College soccer team, Mass. State's 
varsity hooters finally went down to 
a 2 to II defeat. The gymnasts clever 
forward line kept the ball in the 
Statesmen's half of the field most of 
the game, but were met with some 
fine defensive work by Jacobek and 
Burr, the State fullbacks and Smith 
the State goalie, 

Springfield's first goal was scored 

in the second period when Gray head- 
' ed the ball to Munroe who in turn 
headed the ball to Mortensen, the lat- 
Iter beat goalie Smith and scored the 
goal. The gymnasts second goal came 
just before the end of the third pe- 
riod. Condon kicked the ball into the 
group of players in front of the net, 
[ Smith made the save, but before he 
could get rid of the ball a host of 
Springfield players massed around 
him. Smith was forced to drop the 
ball, and when he did Gray promptly 
booted home the pellet. State's de- 
fense stood up admirably under the 
onslaughts of the veteran gymnast'* 
team, and even in defeat the boys 
gave a good eeeounl of themselves.

Meeting one of State's oldest rivals 
in a series which started back in 
1887, Coach Caraway's varsity foot- 
ball team will attempt to upset the 
transit-layed and slide rulc-ealculated 
plans of the Worcester Tech Engin- 
eers. To date, State has won 2f> games 
and Tech, 13 in the off and on series 
of rivalries. 

According to Coach Pill Frigard 
who has been scouting the Worces- 
ter team, the Piglermen have a 
strong, consistent aggregation this 
year. So far this season, Tech has 
defeated Coast Guard and Norwich, 
7-0 and 17-0, respectively. However, 
Trinity managed to escape from the 
mathematical precision of the Engin- 
eers several weeks ago to chalk up a 
17-7 victory against the W.P.I, team, 
which was, by the way, the first de- 
feat that the Piglermen have suf- 
fered since 1937. 

Worcester has a veteran backfield 
which has played together for three 
years. Perhaps the most dangerous is 
190 lb. Forkey at quarterback who 
passes or kicks as the Statesmen can 
well remember. Captain Custafson 
and Fritch at left half and fullback 
are also threats, especially Gustafson, 
who is on the receiving end of For- 
key's passes. 

In the line the Engineers have three 
veterans: Scott at center, Andreopo- 
lous at guard and Pellos at end. At 
right tackle will be I,otz.

7 Rooming-House Sins Pass In 

Review for Searching Reporter 

in the face, all depending upon the 
finger of Fate. Such is the life of 
Lechery. A bout with love from the 
time he gets up until the time he goes 

to bed — and we have it confidentially 
from his roommate that it doesn't 
end there. 

If, by strange chance, gentle read- 

er, you don't happen to recognh. 
some of these characters, remember— 
you yoivself may not be the Fae \ 

By Hal McCarthy 
Have you met the seven deadly 
SINS who infest our rooming-houses 
at State College? "The House of 
Pride" (or the Rooming-House from 
the Inside) is dissected cross-section- 
ally in this research for the Col- 
ley inn. 

"A lonely knight was pricking on 
the plains . . ." We will assume him 
to be you, or you, or any other simple 
country bumpkin. You, the knight, 
have encountered and tried to live 
in spite of the following campus 
types who were prematurely char- 
acterized by Spencer. (No, not that 
one-wc mean the original Sir Ed- 

First comes Pride. Every house has 

'•What mark d'.ja get?" he asks. 
"... a <>0? Too bad, I got a 90." 
Pride continues on: "Say, Blank 71 
is a gut, isn't it. What, you flunked 

Meanwhile he struts about the 
room, resplendent in his roommate's 
new suit. You might comment that it 
looks like a hasty reproduction of a 
sunset, but Pride wouldn't hear you. 
He is fixedly staring into your mir- 
ror, murmuring to himself, softly, 
lovingly. You suddenly realize the 
possibilities of Pride's throat. 

Idleness is the amiable innocuous 
fellow who sees fit to drop in upon 
you at the most inappropriate mo- 
ment. When there is studying to be 
done, there is Idleness to be dealt 
with, for this is the time when he 
chooses to invade your room. A gen- 
eroua handful of tobacco will gen- 
erally be borrowed, along with your 
last package of matches. Then, with 
your radio blasting, bis feet propped 
upon your desk, your tobacco burn- 
ing in his pipe, and your own, per- 
sonal pornographic art collection 
strewn promiscuously about the room 
he will fall asleep. You pick up a 
chair and shortly, very shortly, the 
unfortunate fellow's sleep becomes 
even sounder. 

Next in the train comes Avarice. 
Avarice drops in to borrow your elc- 
tric-iron, offers to press your pants 
for two-bits, then wears them for you 
the next day. You reflect that he I 
holds down about five jobs on cam- 
pus and betides meeting his college 
expenses manages to send his N. Y. 
A. check home once a month. He is 
the one who caused the candy and 
Coca-Cola concession to fold up in 

the fraternity house next door. He 
sells his Activities ticket for Satur- 
day's football game, then crawls un- 
der the fence and sells apples, two 
for five, that he "pinched" from the 

Wrath is a popular fellow around 
campus. It is Wrath who soars across 
the field after the football game and 
socks the unsuspecting visitor as he 
stands triumphant beneath the trem- 
bling goal-posts. Wrath, it is, who 
leaps upon the bandstand after the 
evening rally and with a dramatic 
flourish shouts "on to Amherst." 

Gluttony, now, is a bird of a dif- 
ferent feather, but, nevertheless a 
bird. He is a confirmed habitue of all 
the eating places both on and off 
campus, not excepting the Inns of 
Northampton. His thirst for "fire- 
water" is second only to the thirst 
of the original "Firewater" himself. 
Gluttony always manages to be pres- 
ent when laundries arrive from home. 
Everyone, from the Landlady to the 
most removed "grind" sufFer from 
his insatiable ravages. There is al- 
ways someone to tell you about the 
time he got caught stealing cheese 
from the mouse trap. 

Envy is the fellow who wants to 
to room in the boarding house and 
know "Why." He proceeds from room 
to room. Why did "She" go to I 
the dance with B — , after she had told 
him that she had broken her leg. 
Why did Tom get a higher mark in 
Chem, than he did. Why was Dick's 
contribution in the Quarterly while 
his was put in the wustebasket. Why 
did Harry p;et in the game while he 
held down the bench. Everybody 
wants to know Why someone won't 
throttle him. 

Lechery is a familiar character in 
all the Rooming Houses. If you would 
listen, he would entertain you all 
night with bawdy tales of his num- 
erous conquests. Lechery can gen- 
erally be found returning early in 
the morning, worn and haggard, 
from the direction of, say, a nearby 
Turkey farm. Occasionally his rou- 
tine varies sufficiently to include 
Proxy's Hill, or Lover's Lane. His 
philosophy of life is a pragmatic one 
of give and take. He regards the op- 
posite sex as a sort of opponent in 
a game of chess — only the game does 
not just end with "check-mate." The 
Betting for his little dramas is often 
the Library Reading room. The up- 
shot of the whole affair may be a 
"coke" in the College Store or a slap

oday there are about 1,000,000 

cigar stores, drug stores, country and grocery stores where 
you can buy cigarettes in the United States. These re- 
tailers, and the jobbers who serve them, have built up 
a service of courtesy and convenience unmatched by any other 
industry catering to the American public's pleasure. 

are engaged directly or indirectly in the transportation of 
cigarettes to every town, hamlet and crossroads. 

IT IS ESTIMATED that there are 1,602,000 
tobacco farmers raising tobacco in 20 out of the 48 
states. Good tobacco is one of the hardest crops to 
raise and bring to market, requiring great skill and 
patience from seed-bed planting to harvesting and cur- 
ing. The modern tobacco farmer has done well the job 
of constantly improving the quality of his product. 

XhE AVERAGE LENGTH of service of the 13,230 
people working in the Chesterfield factories, storage 
houses, leaf-handling and redrying plants is over 10 
years. This means that every step in the making of 
Chesterfields, regardless of how small, is handled by peo- 
ple who have had 10 years of experience and ability in 
knowing their jobs. 

people live, work and achieve, and Chesterfield takes 
pride in its ever increasing part in this great industry that 
is devoted entirely to the pleasure of the American public. 

To SMOKERS, Chesterfield Cigarettes have 
always said, and now repeat, that in no other cigarette 
made can you find the same degree of real mildnessand 

good taste, or the same high quality of properly cured 
and aged tobaccos. Chesterfield Cigarettes are made 
with one purpose only... to give smokers everywhere 
SURE they want. You can't buy a better cigarette.

The Massachusetts State College 
varsity football team will play host 
to Amherst College this Saturday at 
Alumni Field, in the 48th football 
classic to date. 

The Statesmen have won but one 
game in live starts so far this sea- 
son, and their hopes for this game 
will be based on a wide open passing 
attack. The Jeffmen so far have 
shown no improvement in their pass 
defense since October 7 when they 
played the Hrown Pears. 

The Brains capitalized OB the Sa- 
briiia's close defense and filled the 
ether with passes to score their first 
touchdown. And last week the Sa 
blina clttb met defeat at the hands 
of a passing u ' >sleyan team.

gin of victory was never one touch*

State team has demonstrated that it 
has and can use to advantage a line

Last week through his death the 
college lost one of the influential mem- 
bers of the Chemistry department. 
That man was I>r. Joseph B. Lind- 
sey, Professor emeritus of chemistry. 
He was the power behind the greatest 
developments in the department. 

He was successor to Dr. Goess- 
mann and a man of character. Gen- 
erosity, common sense fairness, far- 
sightedness were some of his traits. 
He was a good judge of men, fair 
in all his ways. 

Dr. Lindsey was persuaded by Dr. 
Goessmann, in 1889 to complete his 
studies at Gottingen. He had receiv- 
ed his degree at this college in 1883. 
On his return to Amherst in 1892, 
he was associated with Dr. Goessmann 
in the Experiment station. Here be- 
gins the most interesting and pro- 
ductive years of Dr. Lindsey's life. 

He became one of the forerunners 
of the Extension Service. In those 
days almost every village hail a 
Farmer's Club, which met period- 
ically. At these meeting! speakers 
were always in demand, especially 
speaker! of Dr. Lindsey's caliber. His 
booming voice and spendid platform 
manner made him a fine speaker. 

In 18!>!> Dr. Lindsey became ill and 
had to remain in a quiet room for 
a year. This narrowed down his ac- 
tivities for the years to come. He was 

unable after this to make public 
speeches because of the excitement in- 

Upon the retirement of Dr. Goess- 


Dr. Joseph It. Lindsey 

maim in 1907, Dr. Lindsey was given 
the control of the experiment Station 
chemistry. In 1909 he became vice- 
director of the Experiment station 

and in 1911 he became head of all 

of the chemistry at State. 

With Dr. Lindsey's elevation to the 
head of the chemistry department 

begins the great development which 

has kept State abreast of the times 
in chemistry. As he was not in the 
best of health, he had to delegate 
some of his duties to the other men 
in his department. Pr. Chamberlain 
took care of the finances, and Dr. 
Peters took care of the scholarship. 

Probably Dr. Lindsey's greatest 
contribution was one made in 1918, 
The department was weak in physi- 
cal chemistry at this time. He and 
his associates decided that a man who 
had studied this phase of the sub- 
ject should be brought here. Dr. 
Lindsey himself went to Chicago and 
picked one man from a group of 
three. It is this decision and selec- 
tion that has made chemistry one 
of the strongest department! here at 

Dr. Lindsey was also a big factor 
in the building of Goessmann Labor- 
atory. He and hii Associates started 
planning it in 1912 and in 1922 their 
dreams were realised. 

In 19.'I2 Dr. Lindsey retired to the 
status of Goessmann professor of 
chemistry, emeritus. Since that time 
he has b een inactive in campus mat-

Tomorrow and Saturday State College stu- 
dents will be able to attend one of the most 
interesting and worthwhile conferences that 
will visit the campus this year. Largely due to the work of Dr. 
Charles Rohr of the Economics Department, the fourth annual 
conference on current governmental problems will present a two- 
day program featuring talks and round-table discussions by 
some of the outstanding Eastern authorities on government. 

Hon. Paul A. Dever, Attorney General of Massachusetts and 
outstanding Democratic possibility for Governor, will be the 
chairman of the conference with other speakers including Com- 
missioner Long of the Department of Corporations and Taxa- 
tion of Massachusetts, Commissioner Graves of the New York 
Taxation and Finance Board, William B. Baker of the Massachu- 
setts General Court, Thomas Joyce, of the Massachusetts Feder- 
ation of Taxpayers' Associations, and Charles E. Gaffery, vice- 
president of the Massachusetts State Federation of Labor. 

Along with these speakers, discussions will be led by pro- 
fessors from Harvard University, Amherst College, Mount Hol- 
yoke College, the University of New Hampshire, and the State 
College. The representatives from this College along with Dr. 
Rohr include Dr. Philip Gamble of the Economics Department and 
Dr. Fred .!. Sievers, Director of the Graduate School.

Mr. Spencer Goes to a Committee 

Scene: a table in the Memorial 
building around which is seated the 
1940 Winter Carnival Committee. 
Slowly a door opens and Spencer 
walks hesitatingly into the room. 

Osmun. welcome to your first com- 
mittee meeting, old boy. Here have a 


Spencer (sarcastically). Thanks, J. 
Vincent, I'll vote for you. (A few 
scattered laughs and Spencer and 
others exchange greetings.) 

Noyes. Ev, we're going through our 
budget for this year. According to 
Shapiro, you have been budgeted 

Spencer, (who didn't expect half 

that amount). Well. 

Shapiro. No, Art he's getting $150. 


Spencer. WELL. (To himself) 
guess I didn't make a mistake when I 
ordered that tweed suit. Probably I'll 
get a pair of shoes out of this too. 
(To Osmun). Say, John, that's a nifty 
tweed suit. When did you get it? 

Osmun. Let's see. When was I on a 
committee last? 

Noyes (interrupting). You realize, 
Ev, that most of that money will be 
used up in the printing of programs, 
stationery, and posters; also for news 
pictures, radio programs, and a few 
other things. Last year that came 
close to $100.00 in all. 

Spencer (wide-eyed.) Of course, 
Art. (To himself) Well, I didn't need 
a pair of shoes badly, anyway. 

Noyes. We'll have to rebudget our 
funds. We'll cut down on the others 
and rebudget it to you. Ev, have you

cutting, Ev? 

Osmun (smiles reassuringly at 
Spencer and is getting quite a kick 
out of the proceedings.) Yes, Ev, have 
you any ideas. Will you need all that 
money you have? 

Spencer (cornered). Well, I suggest 
that we take $25.(10 from my account 
and rebudget it to Brown. (To him- 
self) Well, that leaves me about 
$25.00 for my suit, and I'm being a 
good fellow. 

Noyes. Good. The treasurer will 
take care of that. 

Miss Gale. Art, I'll need about $3.50 
more for postage and cards. 

Perry and Uetallick (together). 
We're short $5.00 for transportation. 

Spencer. (To himself) Oh, oh, here's 
where I came inl 

Brown. If our proposed ski meets 
go through, Art, I'll need at least 
$12.50 more. 

Osmun. I need $3.75 more at least. 
(To himself). Might as well get while 
the getting is good.

i nresentatives of Various Organizations Interested in Coeduca- 
tion Program at State College, Hold Meeting Here 
Today — Extensive Program 



Many of the students of this Col- 
lege are preparing to enter some field 
of professional activity. To some of 
you it will seem, I am sure, that 
the goal of accomplishment has been 
reached when you have become a 
member of the medical profession, 
the legal profession, the teaching pro- 
fession, or some other profession. 
Perhaps it is in place to emphasize 
that a person seldom appreciates ful- 
ly before he enters a profession, the 
obligations as well as the opportun- 
ities with which he will be confronted. 

It would be of interest possibly 
to discuss briefly the way in which a 
profession is formed or evolved. In 
other words, what do we mean by the 
profession of the law or of educa- 
tion, etc.? It has been my rather 
interesting experience, through many 
years, to work in two different fields 
— both of which were seeking to 
achieve professional standing. There- 
fore, the steps necessary to achieve 
professional standing have been re- 
peatedly emphasized to me. 

Necessary Steps 

The first of these steps is to set 
up definitions of activities and rela- 
tionships. These come usually as a 
result of careful analysis of activi- 
ties and relationships. In other 
words, what is the field of work and 
what are satisfactory relationships 
among a group of people who are de- 
sirous of achieving professional 
standing? It is comparatively easy to 
define what might be called the tech- 
nical activities; that is, the activities 
that are carried on from day to day 
by a person in his field of work. It 
is much more difficult to define proper 
human relationships; yet these must 
be defined and understood and the 
definitions accepted before the sec- 
ond step in the evolution of a pro- 
fession can be taken. 

The second step in the accomp- 
lishment of professional standing is 
the setting up of definite standards 
of performance. These cannot be set 

terest to study the various way.- 
which the older professions have 
up standards and secured reason; h 
adherence to these standards. Is 
ally the need for standards is ap, 
ciated only after a period of 
practices" in a given group has 
suited in what all appreciate as 
fair competition. In certain of 
older professions, only when dei< • 
fulness, dishonesty, and similar m 
fortunate practices became preva er 
was the group finally forced to D a 
a statement of what are right prat 
tices and standards. 

Adherence to Standards 

Of course after the statement 
made there comes the struggle : 
bring about voluntary adherence • 
the standards. In certain of the pr 
fessions, public opinion is always a: 
important factor in forcing adhen i 
to a standard. Again, if public op;: 
ion will not produce the desired r* 
suits, those who believe high star 
dards are necessary may turn to let 
islative bodies to secure laws tha 
will fix standards. Under our for: 
of government it is very much bette 
if it is possible to bring voluntar 
adherence to accepted standards. 1 
is only under forms of governing 
now existing in certain Europca: 
countries, that the government final';; 
decides that no individual can r> 
trusted but all must be forced V 
government into certain right actio:. 
and standards. We still believe, ;: 
this country, that education and tb 
setting up of certain special incer. 
tives may cause a profession to abn 
voluntarily by certain satisfacto' 
standards of performance. The va 
ous activities and agencies that ha 
been set up as incentives are excee 
ingly interesting and worthy

The church was founded 200 years

There will be a dinner Saturday

DR. LINDSEY The death of Dr. Joseph Bridges Lindsey, pro- 
fessor emeritus of chemistry, one of the col- 
lege's best-known alumni and teachers, came as a severe blow 
to Massachusetts State's administration, alumni, faculty and 


Following his retirement in 1932 Dr. Lindsey kept in active 
contact with the college and was still known to many undergrad- 
uates. He had carried on here the pioneer work in animal nutri- 
tion begun by Charles Goessmann and for twenty years served 
as the Goessmann professor of chemistry. 

As a man, Dr. Lindsey was a lovable personality, dominating 
by sheer good humor any gathering of which he was a part. 
Thousands of alumni who knew him will regret his passing, as do 
the members of the college family. 

In commenting on Dr. Lindsey's death, President Baker stat- 
ed, "Those who knew him best will always believe that his best 
epitaph would read simply — 'He was a good friend, a lovable 
teacher, and a real man.' "

Ed: Well, one more kiss and 
I must be otf. 

Coed: If you only want one more 
kiss you must be off. 

The following is a true story, a 
little late, but nevertheless it is true. 
About a year ago, a group of boys 
decided to personally observe the in- 
ner life of a sorority house. The 
police were called and the young men 
were ordered to leave. After the po- 
lice left, the boys continued their 
observation from a nearby apple tree. 
A coed when hearing about this ob- 
served, "Hmmm, they must be North- 
ern Spies." (If in doubt, consult the 
pomology department.) 

Amherst week-end will find a great 
many of the alumnae of the different 
sororities again on the campus. They 
will be entertained by tea and coffee 
parties. We hope they will be fur- 
ther entertained by State beating 
Amherst in football. 

Quite a few coeds were visitors 
at Harvard last weekend and enjoy- 
ed the Harvard-Dartmouth game. We 
saw Eleanor Jewell, Kay I^eete, Mar- 
tha Hall, and Jean Tyler there. 
Quite a delegation!

An Amazing Value 



The idea of an invitation sub-fresh- 
man day is based on a few funda- 
mental promises which we believe to 
be generally agreed on by all inter- 
ested parties. They are, that the mer- 
its of Massachusetts State College are 
not generally recognized throughout 
the State; that ■ close aMinit.N is lack 
ing between the Student Body and 
the Alumni; that most of OUT Oppo- 
nents in athletics, particularly foot 
ball, are 

students from this campus, we ex- 
pect alumni to participate Saturday 
morning, afterward going to the 
State Amherst football game." 

Taking place in Stockbridge Hall 
Auditorium, the program for tomor- 
row will begin at 1 :.'?() p.m., lasting 
until . r >. After registration, President 
Hugh P. Baker starts the conference 
rolling with a talk on "The Edu- 
cation of the Public in the Science 
of Government." Several other speak- 
ers will also address the opening ses- 

Ajoining until the evening, the 
Conference will again meet, this time 
at the Old Chapel Auditorium at 
eight o'clock when the Hon. William 
B. Baker of the Ways and Means 
Committee, Mass. General Court, 
speaks on "Tax Legislation of the

It is not the contention of the Com- 
mittee that its proposal will miracu- 
lously remedy these defects, but that 
it will certainly be an aid in our ef- 
forts to overcome them. The idea has 
been tried and found to be effective 
in other schools and is new only to 
Western Massachusetts. 

It is proposed that outstanding high 
school students, who have attained 
grades which would lead one to be-

The day could be made to coincide 
with high school vacations which

the two, something that would not 
interfere with any regular campus ac-

reason why the same could not be 
true at Massachusetts State with the 
show becoming an annual affair.

The main feature of the 1!>3'J Hor- 
ticultural Show is the Pomology ex- 
hibit, a twelve-foot architectural 
group composed essentially of three 
pillars and a hemisphere. The hemi- 
sphere itself is huilt of thousands 
of brilliant red Macintosh apples. Im- 
mediately behind it is a tall silver pil- 
lar illuminated by a scarlet beam of 
light and topped by a four-foot seal 
of the Commonwealth of Massachu- 
setts. On either side of the hemi- 
sphere are two other silver pillars on 
top of which are large "M's" done 
in contrasting silver and maroon. The 
base of the entire structure is made 
up of rows of different varieties of 
apples in blended colors. The back- 
ground between the pillars and along 
the top of the pillars is the blue- 
stripe motif. The background of the 
whole affair, however, is a mass of 
evergreen trees. All in all, the light- 
ing effects, the sii iple geometric 
forms used, and the Modernistic sini 
plicity tends to make the pomology 
exhibit an imposing one.

Remember the freshman coeds 
when they first skipped onto campus? 
Fresh energetic creatures, fairly 
reeking with their ten-hours-sleep- 
each-night and their well-presseil 
clothes. Well, upperclass tfirls can 
smirk now, for that stage is over for 
the freshmen. Notice them now in

ging out of chem lab; meet them in

sleepy, looking just a little rumpled) 
often snivelling with the typical cam- 
pus cold. 

The reasons for all this are: first, 
college in general and second, liv- 
ing in the Abbey. 

For if you would like to visit a hot- 
bed of wasted time and useless con- 
versation, just drop into the Abbey 
smoking-room. The freshman girls 
sit there, already half-asleep, and 
wallow in every bit of nasty gossip 
that the campus offers. 

It is long after midnight, and the 
former, dutiful urge to study has 
faded completely away. Of course, 
they must put up their hair, and 
wash a few pairs of socks; then force 
themselves to read A t o W it ) Rocks,

Statesmen Pin Hopes on Wide-Open Passing Attack In Gamble For Jeff Win \Maroon- Amherst Soccer Teams Begin _Activities at Hitchcock Field 


By BJOtT H vman, Sporta Editor 


Once again the traditional Amherst week-end has arrived along with 
the usual exhihitions by the frosh. Statements of October 27, 1938 covered 
the situation at hand very well, and so we reprint excerpts from that column. 
"Each year with the coming of the Amherst game, State College fresh- 
men get all steamed up over the idea of tearing down the Amherst goal posts 
on Friday night before the game, bashing in a "Willie" head or two, or chalk- 
ing "M. S. C." in front of the Amherst fraternity houses. 

"What a stupid way to show loyalty to a college! It is under- 
standable how some freshmen, just a year out of high school, might 
think that riots are rallys; but the sad part of the picture here at 
State is that too many of the upperclassmen never grow up. If for 
one year the upperclassmen refrained from the uptown brawl the 
whole silly tradition of going up to the Amherst rally would be 
broken up. 

"The average State College student should not be blamed for the an- 
nual trouble uptown. He knows that maroon paint on the front steps of the 
Amherst library will never win a football game, and that "State" on the 
Psi U. sidewalk never stopped a Sabrina back. There is a minority here, 
however, that can not understand these things. They think breaking up the 
Amherst rally is fun and that property damage and general disorder should 
be forgiven on the grounds that it is just "fun." 

"The Amherst College nose is none too clean in this respect. Much of 
the trouble caused two years ago was caused by Jeffs who played C. I. O. 
as far as rioting and disorder went. Amherst, however, does not have a tra- 
dition of dropping down on the State campus in swarms to break up our 
rally or paint our buildings. At times, Amherst students have damaged col- 
lege property but it has always been the work of a few — not a mob. 

"Our college should not suffer because scatter-brained students 
riot. It is up to the average State student to see that the minority 
is curbed, and that the frosh learn the difference between college 
and mob spirit. Tomorrow night, after the local rally, some one of 
our campus dim-wits will cry out 'on to Amherst.' It is at this point 
that the student body should show its real spirit — by ignoring him. 
"The Senate and Adelphia, who have the best intentions of the college 
at heart should make it known that attendance at Amherst football rallies 
is great stuff for Amherst students, but not the proper place for State 
College men." 

This plan worked well last year, for the frosh went on no rampage 
toward the town, even though a few tough (?) fellows did try to stir up the 
yearlings with shouts of "On to Amherst," and petty things of that nature. 
The State rally ought to be enough for all frosh concerned. 


Sabrina Club Has Shown Poor Pass Defense in Games so F 
This Year — Freitas and Allan Will be Spearheads of 
State Pass Offensive 


Student Sports Reporter Tells 

of Jeffs Practice on 

Aerial Defense 

Lloyd Jordan 


Freshmen Outweighed by Acad- 
emy Team — Strong Wind 
Costs Plebes Game 

Playing their first game as a unit, 
Bill Frigard's frosh gridmen dropped 
a 7 to decision to a Mount Hermon 
team that far outweighed the year- 
lings. The Frosh, as was expected, 
failed to show an organized attack 
but were by no means badly out- 
played by the visitors. 


The wind played a large part in 
deciding the final score. In the first 
few minutes, a frosh punt went 
straight up into the ether, with the 
result that Mt. Hermon found itself 

By Jerry Dougan 
(Amherst Student Siiorts Editor) 

An off and on Amherst club that 
has shown flashes of offensive bril- 
liance and almost no pass defense this 
fall will be down to try to add State 
to its victory list when Saturday rolls 
around. Three games the Jeffs have 
lost, and of the touchdowns made 
against the heavy Bruhn-coached line 
only two were not set up or scored 
on passes. Aerials have been Jordan's 
downfall all season, and the past two 
weeks have seen almost every prac- 
tice given over to polishing up the 
secondary on stopping these tosses. 

On the offensive no team has been 
able to stop the Purple steamroller, 
which piled through even Brown, so 
this game may turn into a scoring 
race like last Saturday's Jeff-Wes- 
leyan tilt. With Bud Lawton, Bob 
Blood, Stu Roberts and Joe Firman 
running behind the nearly all-senior 
line and the passes of Frank Sweeny 
and Lawton to keep the secondary 
loosened up, Coach Jordan has a 
well-oiled attack that is hard to stop. 

Bob Potter will handle the quarter-

Coach Caraway has been priming

game with plenty of passes throw 
around. The State spirit as showt 
this year ought to go a long wa\ 
toward making this game anything 
but a sure thing for the Jeffmen. 

According to reports that have fil 
tered out of Amherst College, the 
Jeffs are more than a little worried 
about the game and are paying 
special attention to Ralph Simmon:- 
whose guard work has been well 
charted by the Amherst scouts. 


Amherst Weekend festivities will 

e g5n Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock 

a Jeff's Field when the State and 

Amherst soccer teams clash. This tus- 

[ e will mark the opening of the 48th 

ear of athletic relations between the 

v., colleges. According to the rec- 

,,ds the Jeffmen will enter the game 

-light favorite over the Maroon. 


To date Amherst has won one lost 
„ne and tied two games while the 
Statesmen have won two and lost one. 
Nevertheless Amherst held Yale to a 
tie, and Yale soundly trounced Trin- 
t\ 9 to while State only beat Trin- 
ity 2 to 0. In looking through the 
lineups of last year's game we find 
that Amherst has five of its last 
.ear's starters on deck for this year's 
game while State has only three. 
Brown, Burr, and Bowen are the State 
retl while Stott, Johansson, Olena, 
Coleman, and Woods are the Jeff vet- 

Stott, the Amherst captain is a bril- 
liant goalie, and if he is right State 
will have a tough time pushing scores 
past him. Coleman, the Amherst cen- 
ter forward has developed a keen 
coring eye and should be a thorn in 
the Statesmen's side all afternoon. In 
Johansson the Jeffmen have a capa- 
ble and dependable center half who 
should hold up the brunt of the de- 
fensive work for the Lord Jeffs. 

State's attack will center around 
Huckley and Schoonmaker with some 
efficient aid from Red Mullaney. Ja- 
robek, Captain Brown, and Burr will 
give goalie Smith some steady de- 
fensive aid. Regarding the records it 
might be said that when a State team 
meets an Amherst team records mean 
little or nothing. It will be a hard 
fought game and the team that gets 
the breaks will win.

Mullaney Scores First Maroon 

Goal — Schoonmaker Boots 

Second Point 

Last Saturday afternoon at Hart- 
ford Coach Larry BriggS* varsity soc 
cer team returned to the winning side 
of the ledger with a 2-1) win over the 
Trinity College hooters. The game 
started out rather slowly with both 
teams playing rather drab ColorieM 

In the second period the boys in 
maroon came to life and began to 
play the type of soccer game they 
are capable of playing. About a quar- 
ter of the way through the second 
period Red Mullaney capitalized on a 

scoring opportunity and booted home 

State's first goal. The two teams bat- 
tled through the remainder of the 

second period, all of the third period 
and half of the fourth period with- 
out any further scoring. After eleven 
minutes of the fourth period the State 
offensive began to click and Schoon- 
maker pounced Oil a loose ball in 
front of the Trinity net, and heat 
Crockett, the Trinity goalie cleanly 
for State's second and final score. 

Jacobek played his usual steady 
game at one of the fullhack positions, 
and turned back repeatedly Trinity's 
scoring bids. Gib Arnold turned in a 

; scrappy, aggressive game for the Ma 
roon and White. Probably the most 
outstanding Trinity player was Per- 

| guson who held sway at center half. 





Maroon Team Places Six Among 

First Ton Finishers 

—Putney Third 

In spite of placing six men among 
the first ten to score, Coach Derby's 
varsity cross-country team lost a 
closely contested meet to the Wor- 
cester Tech Engineers, by the score 
of 26-SO. The State harriers were 
closely bunched coming into the finish. 

Two Worcester men came in tied 
for first with Capt. Putney in third 
position. Another Worcester man 
came in fourth, Dunklee, closely fol- 
lowed by Kimball of State.

Entering the Connecticut Valley 

Meet on November 7 at Springfield 
College, Coach I>erhy's varsity har- 
riers will be faced by severe compe- 
tition. The teams entered in the meet 
besides Springfield and State, are 
Amherst, Connecticut University, 
Trinity, Wesleyan and Coast Guard. 


Coach Derby predicts that the 

strong Connecticut University team 

will cop first honors. To date, the 

Kutmeggers have defeated Vale and 

M. I. T. and seem to be headed for 
a season with a clean slate. The Con- 
necticut team took first place in 
last year's meet and have such vet- 
erans as Bobbins, Rice who was sec- 
ond in the New Englanda, and 
Wheaton, to burn up the cinder paths 
for them this year. 


According to Coach Derby, Wes- 
leyan has a possibility of garnering 
second position. At the initial meet 
three years ago at State, Wesleyan 
ended up in first place and last year 
the individual champ, Heermans, 
wore the Wesleyan colors. 


State and Amherst have formerly 
considered this race as a dual meet, 
but perhaps Coach Lumley of Am- 
herst will not be anxious to consid- 
er the meet as a two cornered one, 
because the Lord Jeffs have a rather 
weak outfit this year with the excep- 
tion of Prickitt. The last two years 
State and Amherst have split the 

State is slated to end up some- 
where in the middle according to the 
books. The Maroon harriers have 
shown a great improvement lately es- 
pecially in the W. P. I. race where 
six Statesmen placed in the first ten 
only to lose the meet on points. 

Starting on a new idea this year, 

I separate freshman cross country 

competition will be introduced. 
Springfield will probably cop this 
tilt, because the Cymnasts have an 
unusually strong yearling outfit this 
season. State will be severely handi- 
capped in this race, because to date 
only about seven or eight freshman 
candidates have turned out for prac- 
tice. State varsity will also run 


The varsity cross-country team will 
/ace Bgainst the Springfield team to- 
day at 8:00 p.m. The Derby wen ought 
to come out on top in this meet. 


Al Prusick 


The frosh-soph foothall game 
will be played Nov. I at 3:00 p.m. 


Lou Bush, Ebb Caraway, Em Grayson 

Getting anyone on the State coach 
ing staff to make a definite pre-gann 
prediction proved impossible whei. 
the subject of the coming grii 
battle with Amherst was mentioned 

Coach Caraway pointed to a sigr 
for his answer. The sign stated: Ver-

can't we BEAT AMHERST? 

Lou Bush put everything up to th> 
players, saying that they coul 
BEAT AMHERST if the team fough'

Captain Blasko, too, thought tha 
the team could BEAT AMHERST 
judging from the brand of ball the; 
can play.

Books and Libra ru 


"Every library is a true image of its librarian," is the opinion 
of a Professor of Education at the University of California at 
Berkeley. "A school library will be static, dynamic, organic, just 
to the extent that its desk chief is a slave, a servant or a person. 
In like manner the librarian will of necessity reflect the wishes, 
desires, and policy of the school itself, and these originate in the 
teachers, Static teachers make a static school quite satisfied with 
a static library; dynamic teachers make a dynamic school de- 
manding the library as a service agency;—" 

Thus it becomes apparent that in the last analysis a school 
library will be just what the teacher's want it to be, according 
to the professor at Berkeley. 

There are situations which neither teachers nor li- 
brarians like, but which are nevertheless problems. 
Among them is this one. Because it was found to be 
necessary for the protection of the library at the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut, a new ruling has been adopted 
for the reserve reading room. The ruling makes it im- 
possible for any student to take a book into the room 
thereby making it equally impossible to take a book out 
of the room absentmindedly or "forgetfully." 

■" : Z. Ti i« „ ,.^„ ;« *k« f^nviviKnt'irut know what to do. But she had hea.-c 

Another reason for the ruling reports m fee M^ ta«r wna^ ^ ^ ^ ^^ 

Campus indicate, is that there are not enough chans foi studying ^ .^^ ^ condusionS( a la tu 
in the room. Thus only those students who use the reserve books universal sus ,,icious coed fashion 
may use the reserve room. 

While on the topic of studying in the library, we 

came upon a story in The Concordiensis which stated 

that freshmen at Union College are required to study 

about the library in the library. The instructor is the 

librarian of Nott Memorial Library, who, according to 

the paper, is handing in flunking grades for a goodly 

number of the freshmen. Just a case of freshmen show- 
ing that history repeats itself. 

A more serious example of history repeating itself was re- 
ported in the Wesbijan Aryus. On display in the Olin Library 
there are newspapers of the last two months carrying headlines 
on the progress of the European war, as we are prone to call it. 
Along side each of these current newspapers is a newspaper of 
twenty-five years ago carrying headlines which have exactly the 
same story to tell as those of the present war period. What the 
future hoids might be anticipated from the past if the popular 
idea that history does repeat itself holds.

Now, one would say the logical sol- 
ution is to give up smoking during 
the week. Then too, the tendency of<] 
college men to snooze all day and 
call up girls all night does not helj 
matters out. One may throw away 
all cigarettes and barricade the door 
against callers, but no average giri 
can ignore a telephone call with im-

Captain .. 

By Ikvinc Rabinowitz 

With the unexpected arrival of 
Governor Leverett Seltonatall, fea- 
turing its first session, the fourth an- 
nual Conference on Governmental 

Problem* began its series of address- 
es and discussions, last Friday after 
noon at Bowker Auditorium. 

The parley, which was directed by 
Professor Charles J. liohr of the 
Economics Department, brought to- 
gether men prominent in the ad- 
ministration of state and local gov- 
ernment, and resulted in the ex- 
change of views on the various phases 
of taxation problems. With delegates 
from six states including Massachu- 
setts, the conference represented a 

widely distributed cross -section of 
New England Opinion, covering both 
the theoretical and practical aspects 
of taxation. Representatives from 
nine out of the total of fourteen 
Massachusetts counties attended. 

Commenting on the achievements 
of the two-day sessions, Prof. Rohr 
stated: "The members of the com 
mittee and myself consider this by 
far the besf conference we have had, 
both from the point of view of the

The Roister Doisters winter play 

for I 939 got under way last Monday, 
when try outs were held, and a cast 
selected for the eighteen male and 
two female parts in "The General 
Died in Bed." 

Written by liarreca 

The play, "The General Pied in 
Hed" is of special significance at 
State in that it was written by Peter 
Harreca, a member of the junior 
class at State. Harreca, an English 
Major and member of Kappa Sigma 
holds a prominent place in State lit- 
terary circles, as a featured column 
ist on the Collegian staff and regular 
contributor to the Quarterly. 

Harreca first brought the play to 
the attention of Professor Hand about 
a year ago, and since that time it has 
been under serious consideration as 
a potential Roister Poister produc- 
tion. However, due to the fact that 
the Roister Poister's personnel was 
predominantly female, the play had 
to give way to "Stage Poor" which 
had a largely female cast, and "Our 
Town" which had a more balanced 

Revolutieaary Setting 
"The General Pied in Red," deals 

with the love of Tofll Hirkey, a Pev 

olutionary soldier, for Phoebe Fraun 

res, and how :t was complicated by 
the Conflicting political factions of 
that hectic period. The play moves 
against a robust background of the 
Revolutionary period, ami features 
such vital personalities as General 
Washington, Gen. Gates, Thomas 

Paine, and Other historical charac 
teis. The play, on the whole, is his 
torically accurate, especially as re 

gards characterization, although 

some modifications had to he made

attention they received while here. The fault lies partly with the 
Students, but most of the blame should be laid at the door of the 
administration as there was no program outlined for the alumni 
who have come to consider the Amherst-State game as a home-

We are not suggesting that the house parties that are a nickel. D

Some columns ago I said l'.;ir 
was the blackest of the whites in 
band world. Most musicians kneu l 

alumni as the private institutions and therefore should not pay 
any special attention to the graduates but spend the time making 
overtures to the legislature. Although it looks, at times, as though 
this is the system being followed here at State, we doubt if the 
administration really plans to snub its alumni. The alumni of a| 
public institution are, many times, more important to their college 
than alumni are to the private institutions, as a united alumni of a 
state college < an make a strong lobby that would see that the 
Legislature paid Special atention to acts that would be to thd 
benefit of their college. 

Massachusetts state runs a Dads" Day, Mothers' Day, Con- 
necticut Valley Day. perhaps we'll soon see a second-cousin-once- 
ivmoved day. but the alumni have been ignored. This week-end 
Amherst College is holding its homecoming for the graduates and 
featuring the Trinity football game and an active, interesting 
program. Three weeks ago Tufts alumni gathered for homecom- 
ing on the Saturday of the Tufts-Williams garni-, while Connec- 
ticut University graduates visit Storra this week for their home- 
coming on the day of the Rhode Island State game. 

We expect the legislature to support the college by keeping 

up the physical plant and supplying the necessary finances to meet 
expenses, but we should expect another type of support from the 
alumni and we can't hope for the alumni to take an interest in 
the college until we take an interest in the alumni.

The tragedy and comedy of the 
Irish character, with tears never far 
from laughter, was admirably por- 
rayed in Sean O'Casey's comedy, 
f Juno and the Paycock," produced by 
Ihe Amherst College Masquers in the 
arby Theater on Thursday, Friday, 
>nd Saturday evenings of last week. 
I.rriment, terror, grief, quarreling, 
,e. drunkenness, volubility, and 
[a n free indolence were the typical 
Irish stuff of which the play was 
hade. The action all took place in 
the home of the Boyles, in a run- 
down tenement house in Dublin, where 
Ihe tragedy of the son Johnny, the 
Unfortunate love and betrayal of the 
faughter Mary, the dashed hopes for 
legacy of the "Paycock," Jack 
wyle, and the worries and constancy 
\f the mother, Juno, were depicted in 
series of rapidly developing events. 
For accomplished acting, the laur- 
els undoubtedly went to Prof. Curtis 
Pan-field, who took the part of Cap- 
Jack's slippery friend, Joxer 
)aley, and to Mrs. Harriet Whicher 
is .luno. They were consistently Irish, 
vhich cannot be said for some of the 
linor characters in the cast. John

thaven for the part, was eminently 
Lnessful in his portrayal; and Mrs.

Combining all the musical virtues

The Short Horn 

Preparation for the printing of this 

year's class-book, The Shorthorn, has 
already been started. The Shorthorn, 
which is printed every year, is the 
best souvenir of our life here at 
Stockbridge. The publication of the 
book is handled by the students them- 
selves, working under the able direc- 
tion of "Pop" Barrett. Mr. Barrett 
takes a great deal of interest in the 
school and devotes most of his spare 
time to The Shorthorn. We sincerely 
thank Mr. Barrett for the interest 
which he shows in our work and 
should cooperate with him to lessen 
the burden which he has so unselfish- 
ly taken upon himself. 

Mr. Barrett has asked the stu- 
dents for their cooperation. We 
must show him our appreciation 
by volunteering our talents, serv- 
ices, and time. There will be 
enough work for a large number 
of those who desire to help. If 
there is any talent among the 
student body, let us show it in 
The Shorthorn. 

The position of Editor in Chief will 
be selected by a faculty council. Their

Saltonstall Speaks 

GOV. Saltonstall related the prob- 
lem of taxation to the old conflict 
over state's rights. Describing how 
the increasing functions of the fed- 
eral government demanded an ever 
increasing proportion of the total in- 
come, the governor stated. "The more 
services originate in Washington, the 
more money must be raised by the 
Federal government, and correspond- 
ingly, state sources of revenue are 
depleted. The great problem of state 
i revenue is how we can pay our state 
expenses, when the Federal govern- 
ment is absorbing our sources of

Other campus papers present ideas which serve well 
to develop the idea that this will be our war. The \ er-

ligerents are able to pay cash for these badly needed 
supplies we can expect a period of comparative pros- 
perity in this country. But after the cash runs out, what

haustable, but the appetites of cannons are not. The edi- 
torial continued with "immediately industry would begin

You may not want to ride on a caisson now, but let

state of New York and has a popu- 
lation approximately the same as that 
of New York City. Because of its lo- 
cation, the land is seventy-five per

of people: Swedes and Finns, who 
descended from the same ancestral 
origin as the present-day Hungari-

the business class. 

Finland ranks seventh in size 
I among the European countries. The 
climate is very warm despite its loca-

explained that sixty per cent of the 
people earn their living by means 
of agriculture, seventeen per cent by 
industry and handicraft, four per

ping, and Sixteen per cent through 
other trades and profession. The two

Auuld be asking too much for they

.am— but with a second place in the 
Connecticut Valley Cross-Country 
ihampionships, beating out teams like 
Wesleyan, and Trinity in what was 
regarded by those in the know as 
practically a win. 

And to top off the Connecticut Val-

in their dual meet, to give State its 
third win of the week-end.

their team work leaves 

much to be 
desired. True the engineers held A. I. 
('. to a tie, which is quite an ac- 
complishment in itself, hut to date 
M. 1. T. has failed to win a game in 
the N. E. L S. League. 

Still smarting under the defeat 
administered by Amherst, State can 
climb back up in the league stand- 
ings by a win over the Engineers. A 
victory will regain the lost ground 
last Friday's loss incurred. State will 
go into the game Saturday at almost 
full strength. Langworthy will be the 
only varsity man on the injured list. 

The boys will take the field confident 
of victory and barring accidents or 
bad breaks should pull this one out. 
State's starting lineup will be essen- 
tially the same as the team Coach 
Briggs has been starting. 

Jacobek and Burr will probably 
form the last line of defense in front 
of goalie Smith. Howe, Erickson, and 
Captain Brown will probably appear 
at the half back positions while the 
attacking strength of the State team 
will center around Bowen and Mul- 
laney on the wings, and Buckley, 
Schoonmaker, and Ackroyd at the for- 
ward positions, The fact that the 
Tech team is weaker and not a typi- 
cal M. I. T. varsity soccer team 
should mean a victory for the Briggs-

should, along with Schoonmaker be 
able to improve their standings in the

Blood Plunge* Over for Second Goal 

The Maroon and White cross- 
country team covered itself with 
glory last Tuesday when it finished 
second in the Connecticut Valley 
Meet, and beat Amherst 20 II at the 
same time in their dual meet. Holmes 
Of Wesleyan won in the fast time of 
21 :18. 

Connecticut was an easy winner 
with a BOCre Of 26, while State nosed 
out Wesleyan by one point with a 78 
score. Springfield, Trinity, and Am- 
herst followed in that order. 

The Statesmen garnered all the 
positions from IS to 17 with Putney 
leading the team Kimball finished a 

food second and Wat followed across 
by Muni., and then, Ua>\\ard and 

Copson. Morrill clinched second piece 

for State by coming m 2'J. thereby 
displacing two Wesleyan runners. 
Captain Putnej sprinted down the 

ttreteh in s grand finish but was iust 
beaten out for twelfth position by 
Johnson of Connecticut. 

Tin lilt of Amhertt won the indi- 
vidual race between the Jens and 
state, but the team strength of the 
statesmen overwhelmed the Sabri- 

nas. Putney, Kimball, Hunk, Hay 
ward, Copson, and Morrill finished 
after Prickrtt in that order, follow- 
ed by Kennedy in tenth place.

Coeducation Was the Best Move Ever Made 

Here at State College, Says "Ma* Goodwin 

By Alan Bell '4.'i 

"Having girls come to this school 
was the best thing they ever did!" 
declared a very positively opinioned 
lady the other day that we'd like you 
to meet. For over twenty-one years 
she has been maKing friends (and- 
opinions) at State and, more impor- 
tant, keeping them. 

Her name is Anna Goodwin but no- 
body ever calls her that unless, per- j 
haps, it's the tax collector. No, in- 
deed, she is called "Ma." "Ma" Good- 
win. The title hangs right out in 
front of her house where so many of 
her "boys" eat each day. A little 
sign, as signs go, it says simply "The 
Colonial Inn — Ma Goodwin's." 
Good Influence 

Speaking further about co-educa- 
tion, she says, "It puts more pep into 
the life of the boys! Girls should be 
around, all the time, then they can 
tell these boys when they don't have 
proper manners!" And Ma Goodwin 
drew herself up. She had said it. 
There it was. 

Probably the first thing you notice 
about Ma is her tall, sparse frame 
and the proud way she holds her fine- 
ly featured head. Some colored folks 
move slowly, so they say, but Ma 
seems to continually scurry from one 
stove to another, from one task to 
another. For a lady who was seventy 
years old last Monday, November 
sixth, and whose working day begins 

at seven and ends at seven, such alac- 
rity is surprising. 

Ma was born outside of Chattanoo- 
ga, Tennessee, back in 1869, the 
daughter of a not too wealthy rail- ' 
road foreman and his wife. Living on ; 
her grandmother's farm until she was 
fifteen, she got much of her school- 
ing from an Amherst-born school 
teacher, Miss Mary Scott. Miss Scott 
later asked Ma to come North and 
work at Stores School, in Connecticut, 
as a companion and nurse girl. This 
was about 188t>. Then, the following ! 
year, she came to Amherst where she 
worked for a Mr. Stone, on North | 
Pleasant Street. 

In 1891— but let Ma tell it: 
"Well, in '91 I met this very nice 
man, you know, and I thought and I ! 
thought. Finally I said to myself, 
'Anna, why don't you get married ?' 
So I did!" Mr. Goodwin died in 1923. 

First Boarding House 

In October, 1918, after deciding to 
open a boarding house for college 
students, Ma scoured the near-campus 
neighborhood and finally purchased 
the house, where she now is, when it 
was just a farm dwelling. Her pres- 
ent kitchen was a milk house cooled 
with water piped from a spring lo- 
cated on the site where the new Kap- 
pa Sigma House is placed. 

And so began the steady flow of 
students and teachers up Ma's 

squeaky porch. Ma has seen the 
Campus change, seen new buildings 
come, new ideas evolve — everything 
seems to have changed but Ma her- 

She insists that her boys have man- 
ners — those that work for her at least. 
Woe betide the hapless waiter who 
forgets his "Good Noon, Ma" and, to 
Ma's daughter, "Good Noon Ollie!" 
when he comes on duty. Woe betide 
the be-t rayed waiter that fails to 
cry, "Hot stuff! Coming through!" 
when he weaves his way past a con- 
gested part of the kitchen. His first 
premonition of breakers ahead comes 
when Ma, in a nicely crisp voice says, 
"Take it easy there, take it easy! 
Come out of the ether!" Once or twice 
Ma has been known to glare at the 

Ma just laughs at her, well, repu- 
tation. "You know," she said, "I like 
to scare the very daylights out of 
these boys and then, when they're 
'way down low, I jes' soft soap 'em, 
jes' soft soap 'em." 

Its only natural that Ma should 
have poignant memories of many of 
her boys. She leaned back, squinted | 
her eyes at the ceiling and remem- 
bered names like Bob Ferguson, John 
Calvi, Bob Chism, Norm Hilyard, 
Walter Barney. Then Ma turned her 
head to her daughter Olive and said, 
Olive ? He was a beautiful boy." — 
turning to us again — "He left one 
day to go to War. He never did come 

Some of the boys have been away 
for years. Yet more than one thou- 
sand Christmas cards are sent to Ma 
every year. She saves them carefully 
and intends to paper a room with 
them some day. 

"My boys don't forget nie," she 
■aid, looking up with a half-smile 
twisting one coiner of her mouth.

Could The Student have in mind an appeal to the intellect 
to keep us out of war? What brings a nation into war? Intellect? 
Or is it rather an appeal to emotions, such emotions as fear and 
international hatred that precipitates armed conflict. About the 
only way left to keep this nation out of war is to teach its people 
to fear war, to hate the very thought of our nation's engaging in 
this senseless struggle. But who is to do this? That there is no 
one makes our participation inevitable.

plans for the dance that will draw 
close to 150 Tufts students. 
Reciprocal Event 

This is the first time that the col- 
lege has scheduled any special events 
for the Tufts students following the 
traditional game that closes the sea- 
son for both elevens, and is the direct 
result of the State week-end that was 
held at Tufts last year when the 
Statesmen wound up their season in

Large Crowd 

The admission to the dance will be

Sigma Xi society last night on 
"Our Incont rollahle Covcrnor, the 
Pituitary Cland." This was the 
first in a series of lectures being 
presented under the auspices of 
the Sigma Xi society. 

Dr. Kiddle is one of America's 
outstanding scientists, and is 
probably the foremost authority on 
the pituitary in the world. His re- 
search has included studies on in- 
ternal secretions, color develop- 
ment, the physiology of reproduc-

basis of sex. 

This was a public meeting, and 
a large audience of interested per-

literate concerning the Amherst Con-

any artist or speaker who mounts the

M. S. U. In the last two weeks the college has played host to 
thousands of persons who have traveled to Amherst 
for the Horticultural Show and Taxation Conference. Among 
those who have taken part in the two activities have been many 
who are active in affairs of the Commonwealth, and the impres- 
sion left with them of the work of the college could not he any- 
thing but favorable. 

It is work of the type done by the show and the conference 
that will lead to a Massachusetts State University and we should 
consider every conference and meeting on this campus as a step 
toward the university that we all picture as the ultimate goal of 
the college. 

There are some here on campus who want the college to 
become a university over night, merely by act of the General 
Court with the signature of the Governor. This group is not made 
up only of students, but number among its backers members 
of the alumni, faculty and more than one person in the Adminis- 
tration. Although this method would bring about the university 
we want, there are many arguments against it that seem to over- 
balance the arguments on the side of the immediate change. 

First, with the college finances at their usual low state, there 
would not be any money to carry on any of the work of a real 
university, and this would still be a college in everything but 
name. Another point that should be mentioned is that at the 
present time the physical equipment of the college is not ready- 
to carry the load that a university with its increased enrollment 
would bring. 

Much better than the immediate plan, seems to be the idea of 
letting the college grow into a university on the strength of the 
work it is doing, and on the gradual increases in finances and 
physical equipment. Rather than have a shell of a university 
(there is an "s" before the "hell"), it would seem a better plan 
to have the college become a university when it has shown that it 
has the means to carry on the more complex work that will be 
required under a new set-up. 

Last year when the Connecticut State College changed its 
name to the University of Connecticut, many praised the idea 
picturing new work in education for the Nutmeg institution. But 
a look at the records will show that except for two new buildings, 
the University of Connecticut is still Conn. State. There was no 
increase in the teaching staff and the income of the university has 

stayed the same. 

There are some who say that the administration, here, is 
content to "muddle along" rather than drive for a university. 
This statement does not hold water when we look at the work the 
college is doing with limited funds. Every year the college is a 
step nearer a university, but it is building a foundation rather 

than a shell. 

When the Massachusetts State University stands on the 
« ampus that was once the Massachusetts Agricultural College, the 
alumni and students will know that their alma mater is no sham 
institution hiding its Inadequate program behind the name of' 

Bacchus, or to the (Jreek scholars, 
Dionysus— or to the sons and daugh- 
ters of the canaille, the god of wine, 
has never visited this campus in per- 
son. There are items, such as Am- 
herst weekends, when the patron saint 
of wine sippers sends his representa- 
tives, but the old boy himself has 
never set foot on our campus. 

He has shown up at Amherst Col- 
lege on various occasions — especially 
on Alumni day, and has joined in the 
celebrations like a true Epicurean. 
However, he shuns this end of town. 
Not because we have no Bacchantes 
society, for we have; but because our 
festivities have not the punch and 
effervescence that the drinking deity- 
enjoys. Our celebrations lack that nec- 
essary bubble, and realizing this Bac 
chus merely sends a personal repre 
sentative to help a party along. 
Neptune has often been here 
acting in the capacity of a chas- 
er, following tempting Hebe, the 
graceful cupbearer, in and out of 
the fraternity houses. And when 
the sky was showing the first 
rays of dawn. Ganymede, another 
cup bearer, was once seen quietly 
leaving one of the college soror- 
ity houses. 

We have no doubt that Neptune and 
the cup bearers, and even Apollo who 
scared up a few laurel bushes at one 
party, really enjoyed themselves. But 
in their reports to the head grape 
peeler, they have stated again and 
again that State College parties were 
no livelier than a secret meeting of 
the Ladies' Aid Society. And Bacchus, 
with the memory of a woman and 
hatchet still bringing him discomfort, 
fn.wns on all Ladies' Aid Societies. 
However. State College Hac- 
chanals can rejoice; for Bacchus 
has finally consented to visit our 
campus, tiger and all, to take 
part in the Kappa Sigma house 
warming. The portly old soul can- 
not resist house warmings. Ever 
since the night, years ago, when 
Juno, or Hera, or Queenie was 
holding a warming party to cele- 
brate the opening of Olympus 
Inn, and drank Iron Stomach 
Hercules and shapely Venus — 
who then had arnw, under the 
table. Bacchus has always had a 
warm spot in his heart for house 
baptism ceremonies. 
Bacchus was rather hesitant about 
accepting the invitation to help in the 
celebration. He feared, to put it in 
his own words, "that they might put 
me in the same room with the chaper- 
ones." And he tells the story of how 
he was invited to an Amherst house 
warming and mistakenly led into the 
chaperone's room, and then turning 
to leave, he found the door locked. 
Cries for help were useless. The room 
was sound proof, and it was not until

It has always been an amazing ex- 
perience for me to witness the per- 
sistence of unfounded and often crit- 
ical rumors and stories. You are all 
familiar, of course, with the quota- 
tion from Shakespeare "The evil that 
men do lives after them, the good 
is oft interred with their bones." How 
exceedingly tough and persistent is 
the life of a bad or salacious story or 
a false rumor or a rumor of some 
omission or commission of word or 
deed by people or institutions. And 
why these comments on the persist- 
ence of an unfounded rumor or story '.' 
Repeatedly during the past half doz- 
en years, reports have come to me 
that certain people, who may possi- 
bly of disposition be critical of most 
of the sincere efforts of men, have 
critized recent developments at the 
College by saying that the interest 
in Agriculture at the College is de- 
clining or that we are teaching less 
Agriculture or giving less efficient 
service to the agricultural interests 
of the State or even that agricultural 
students at the College are not being 
fairly treated. Even some good 
friends of the College who should at 
least take the trouble to find out 
what is being done by the College 
within the field of Agriculture have 
repeated some of these critical com- 

Land Grant College 
As the College is one of the two 
Land Grant Colleges of the Common- 
wealth—the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology being the other— it 
must and will continue to be the 
Agricultural College of the Common- 
wealth both that it may teach Agri- 
•ultuie fully and efficiently, as may 
be needed by students at the Col- 
lege who are interested in the sub- 
ject, and that it may give the great 
agricultural industry of the Common- 
wealth satisfactory service through 


the Agricultural Experiment Station 
and the Agricultural Extension Sen 
ice. This rumor that the agricultural 
work at the College was being enia 
culated was brought to me by a Tru 
tee of the College before my work 
began at Amherst. Therefore, within 
a very short time after coming to the 
College, the Head of the Division of 
Agriculture was asked direct'y 
whether the College was teaching less 
Agriculture than in years gone by or 
doing less in its service to the agu 
cultural industry of the Common- 
wealth. The reply came back quickly 
and positively that the College is 
teaching more Agriculture and doing 
a better job in its teaching and giv 
ing more effective service in Agu 
culture than ever before. From yeai 
to year this same question has been 
asked of those who have to do with 
teaching and research in Agricultuif 
at the College and the same 
has always been made. 

Doubtless some of those who op- 
posed the change in name of the Col 
lege became convinced that those 
who favored the change in name 
would begin immediately to cut down 
in the agricultural activities of the 
College. This, of course, was not the 
intent of those who favored tin 
change in name. Furthermore, the 
fact that there has been a greater 
increase in number of students in the 
Divisions of Physical and Biologicai 
Sciences and Liberal Arts than in 
Agriculture has led others to Ulfei 
that the College was not making the 
appeal which it should make to those 
who might be interested in instruc- 
tion in Agriculture. Again, this El 
not correct. On the contrary it il 
probable that the Division of Agri 
culture has carried on more and bet 
ter publicity than any other division 
at the College for the purpose of at

Well, rushing has come and gone — 
'twas much more lady-like than in 
years past and that is something to 
be proud of. 

One conscientious rusher said 
to a group of rushees. "Well, we 
hate to have to rush you but it is 
time for you to leave." 
The Horticultural show is another 
past event about which we may feel 
justly proud. One coed was questioned 
about her exhibit depicting the first 
snow which took the first place. She 
was asked if they had left anything 
of Rattle Snake Gulch. She replied, 
"Why yes, we left something — the 
beer cans." 

The fashion tip of the day is 
to look as much like a tintype as 
possible. Pretty soon, button 
hooks will be coming back to the 
top of bureaus to enable us to 
button high shoes if this return 
to the "Gay Nineties" continues. 
Which reminds us of the defini-

A new campus organization, the 
Current Affairs Club, came into be- 
ing last Wednesday evening at the 
Old Chapel. Supplanting the former 
International Relations Club, the 
new organization plans a program

nature than that of its predecessor. 

At the elections held at the in- 
augural meeting, the following were 
chosen: President, Dick Glendon '40; 
Vice-President and chairman of pub- 
licity committee, Ed Oppenheim '40; 
Secretary and head of the arrange- 
ments committee, Jack O'Neill '40. 

With Dr. Cary as Faculty Advisor, 
the charter members of the Current 
Affairs Club are as follows: Dick 
Glendon, Don Shaw, Leo Carroll, Ed- 
ward Oppenheim, Glen Mulvey, John 
Kirsch, Jack O'Neill, Frank Bagge. 

The topic to be discussed at the

As far as is known this is the 
first activity to be sponsored by 
the Commuters as a group. They 
hope to hold more dances this year 
and there are tentative plans for 
a banquet for the Commuters at- 
tending the dances to be held in 
May or June. 

This dance is open to all stu- 

Music will be provided by John-

Fine Art* 

An unusual treat in the Fine Arts 
Series at the Massachusetts State 
College will take place next Tuesday, 
November 21, at 4:'M p.m. in the Old 
Chapel. Dr. Vernon Helming will 
share with the Fine Arts Audience 
the results of his searches in the ca- 
thedrals, shrines and libraries of Eu- 
rope and America. With the aid of 
some interesting illustrations made at 
these historic places he will endeavor 
to recreate the true story of the pil- 
grimage which has so frequently been 
reflected in the art. drama and litera- 
ture from the Middle Ages to the 
present day. Dr. Helming has recently 
travelled widely in France, Italy, 
England, Germany and Belgium. 

ural coloring, a sense of movement, 
a realistic portrayal. In the inland 
scenes, however, there seems to be an 
excess of coloring without much 
thought in selection. The huge mass 
of rock in The Adam* Place, for ex- 
ample, is not only ugly, it is incred- 
ible. Naturally an oil painting can 
not, and perhaps should not, have the 
nicety and exactness of a careful pen- 
cil sketch, but it should evidence a 
normal restraint in the use of colors 
and in the relative size of the ob- 
jects painted. Even the power and 
sweep of natural movement, which 
Mr. Go wen has caught successfully 
in many of his sea paintings, may be 
lost through lavish portrayal, as il- 
lustrated by Northeaster. The sub- 
ject, an excellent one in itself, be- 
comes ludicrous in such an extreme. 


Nevertheless, Mr. Gowen evidences 
a versatility of treatment — he can 
give a different spirit to any one of 
his sea paintings. There is no mon- 
otony, no excessive repetition; he 
gives that southern portion of Maine 
a vigorous interpretation. For those 
interested in New England land- 
scapes the exhibition should be en-

Thi, month there has appeared 
among the new Columbia releases » 
^cording „r the Brahma First Sym- 
phony. This, Maaterworks Volume, la 

a reproduction of the previous 
Brahms First. Both were played by 
the London Symphony Orchestra and 
led by Felix Weingartner. It is to be 
noted, although hy no meana deroga- 
torily. that both recordings have prac- 
tically the same interpretation, ex- 
cepl in minor points of section em- 
phasis here and there. However, there 
is an improvement in this recording 
which is noticeable. 

The other recording was issued un- 
der the number M103, dating it years 
hack. During the intervening time, 
Columbia has improved its facilities 
for record reproduction BO that, with 
a machine which is able to do any 
justice at all to the symphony, we 
have a superb piece of music. 

Brahms is known as one of the 
jireat forces in romantic music. 
Vet. contrasted with the more 
precocious musical geniuses, 
Brahms did not write a symphony 
until he was forty years old- 
time enough for him to learn and 
know. What he produced as a 
first attempt is good enough to 
place it among the great sym- 
phonies of all time. 
Being a romantic, he followed only 
superficially the forms prescribed for 
the (symphony. Only in the fact that 
a symphony is a sonata for orchestra 
did he retain the forms. Contrary to 
custom, he began the movement with 
a drawn out introduction. This in- 
troduction rather horrified the con- 
servative die-hards of his generation, 
but now is accepted as proper. Of its 
kind, it contains some of the most 
beautiful passages in all music. The 

Once Upon a time there was a coed 
named Mabel and she went to school 
in a town called Amherst. She found 
out about a lot of things like Botany 
and Zoology and Orientation, but she 
didn't know anything about things 
called sororities. But not for long 
did she remain ignorant— soon she 
began to collect little odd bits of in- 
formation about these puzzling insti- 

Sororities, Mabel found, are houses 
with Greek letters and very polite 
girls who come to see you and make 
you drink tea and make you dance 
with them in the Abbey. These girls 
are very helpful. They tell you all 
about campus people and courses and 
they should make marvelous fisher- 

Sororities go through a very pe- 
culiar method, Mabel noticed, of "get- 
ting" you HTHT HTHT HT HTTH 
create an air of mystery by careful 
refraining from speaking the dread- 
ful word «»rorit>!i in your presence 
until the appointed week. But then

comes the week. These girls tell you 
jhow tired they are and how dread- j 
; fully wearing rushing is. Yet they: 
I clean house from top to bottom and 
send you cute invitations to go tea 
them. They smile all the time for a 
! whole week, and they even get all 
dressed up on Saturday night and 
I have a party and continue to smile. 
Then all of a sudden they stop 
talking to you so they won't influence 
you. You couldn't be influenced, 
thought Miss Mabel Coed, because 
you don't know what goes on. Sun- 
day afternoon about 4:30 The Sor- 
orities collectively arrive at the Ab- 
bey and behave very peculiarly. They 
hug you and weep and pin a piece 
of ribbon on you. Everybody congrat- 
ulates you — for doing nothing at all! 
Then they feed you some supper and 
later gently motion you in the gen- 
eral direction of home so they can 
catch Upon the sleep they seem to 
have lost over you. 

And most people are very happy 
and, like Pollyanna. are very glad, 
and live happily ever after in the 
things called sororities. Which is all.

tempt to produce greatness. They 
have an attractiveness all their own, 
because they have Brahms' efforts be-

give them the stuff of genius. But the

all its own. And in recognition of the 
Climatic effect desired by Brahms, 
Weingartner has given us a "Master- 

The fourth movement of this 
symphony is one of the justifica- 
tions for rabid, wild-eyed music 
addicts. It combines most of the 
elements that influence people's 
likes. There is a strong, beautiful 
melody, a sustained emotional ap- 
peal, sufficient intellectual content 
for the most exacting, and a to- 
tality and wholeness possessed 
by only few selections in music. 
Brahms was often called the suc- 
cessor to Beethoven; the First 
Symphony is now often called 
The Tenth, than which no great- 
er tribute can be conceived. 
Brahms himself was a shaggy - 
bearded, modest man, revered and 
loved. During his earlier years, he 

encountered many people and events 
of interest. Among the anecdotes told 
of him is one concerning his accom- 
paniment of the great Gipsy violin- 
ist, Remenvi. At the hall where Rem 
enyl was to play the Beethoven 
Kreutzer Sonata, the piano was out 
,,f tune to the extent of a whole half 
tone. There was nothing to do but

Although Brahms appeared during

the prevailing spirit was the gushily 

sentimental one. Now, in contrast to 

the later production of modern plecea, 

and to distinguish it from the pre- 
vious exactingly classic spirit, 
Brahms' music is called romantic. The 
coupling of tbe names Bach and

With the advancement of the col- 
lege, have come many things. The 
standards of learning have gradually 
risen, until now the college demands 
and obtains a higher grade of stu- 
dent. With the coming of the Bache- 
lor of Arts Degree, new studies have 
been added to our curricula. New 
men are filling and increasing the 
ranks of our faculty. Our college 
is growing and advancing, even 
though the progress is slow and pain- 
ful, painful in that we have waited 
years for the new degree, and that 
we shall probably wait a decade for 
a new building. The college, never- 
theless, is climbing to great heights, 
and we are thankful for it. 

And, now, another advancemen 
towards higher learning has at last 
been acquired by the college. This, 
also, has been curbed and stamped 
upon for many years; but continually 
it has cropped up, and at last we 
have won out. A new order of social 
life has been brought about. A new 
freedom for all of us! Oh great day! 
Each evening, Sunday evenings es- 
pecially, a grand social gathering, 
open to all, takes place in the library. 
Now, one can feel free to talk and 
whisper, chatter and gossip without 
restriction in the large spacious 
rooms, with large tables to gather 
around, under the soft glow of the 
beautiful shaded lamps. Wonderful! 
Of course, it seems too bad that 
the students who wish and need to 
study there will have to be banished. 
Nothing, however, must banish this 
attainment to social heights that we 
have worked so hard to gain. Maybe 
the authorities will allow the books 
to be moved to another building for 
those who wish to study. Queer 
people, these "grinds."

I Sad Tales of the Grind, Butterfly, and the 

Late Bird Methods of Studying in the Library 


Study of Heredity Main Theme 

of Poultry Breeders' 

School Meeting 

The study of genetics is taking up 
the three day session of the twelveth 
annual poultry breeders' school 
which opened here last Tuesday. 

About 200 poultrymen are attend- 
ing the school according to Dr. Ray- 
mond T. Parkhurst, head of the de- 
partment of poultry husbandry, who 
is in charge of the course. 

Many outstanding Massachusetts 

"Where are you going?" 

'The Libe." 

From the Chem Lab, the Old Chap- 
el and the Abbey they flock to the 
"Libe," the Mecca of most State 
College students. Some are date-seek- 
ers, some play-girls, some play-boys, 
some excitement-seekers, and those 
with roommate trouble. Rut the 
quaintest characters are the Grind, 
the Butterfly and the Late Bird. 

The Grind walks in as soon as the 
Library opens or immediately after 
dinner. Without wasting time, he en- 
ters the coat room and methodically 
hangs up his hat and coat. Then he 
sharpens his pencils. Our Grind pays 
no attention to the hushed whispers 
or occasional giggles except to cast 
a look of disgust at that silly per- 
son across the table from him. 

Then there is the Butterly, dilly- 
dallying type. She enters the library 
with a faltering step. After making 
herself comfortable beside a friend 
she makes a pretense at studying, but 
she does not study for long. Feeling 
over-ambitious she tackles Chemistry, 
but a puzzled look comes over her 
face and she sighs, and then goes 
searching high and low for fellow 
"plumbers." But, since all are at the 
college store, her Chemistry is left 

About seven -thi rt> the Late Bird 
appears at the Libe and begins to 
grind for an hour exam. 

"What are you doing; here?" asks 
a friend sitting beside her. 

"Exam tomorrow. I have to do some 
tall grinding. I've only 480 pages of 
Government to plow through." 

The friend asks her what she has 
been doing the past few weeks. 

"Nothing," says the Butterfly. "I 
have enough work thinking of ways 
to postpone my homework." 

Disturbing a table full of grinds, 
her friend asks her why she comes to 
the library, when she and the Libe 
have been complete strangers since 
frosh year. 

"Oh, I have to now. My room- 
mate insists on listening to classical 
music all night. Anyway I want a 
date for the weekend. Jim's going 

At nine-thirty Late Bird gathers 
her books and starts for home. 

By the time she is ready to leave, 
Jim appears. Of course, he is going 
to walk our Late Bird home. 

In the meantime, our Grind has 
completed his work and is reading a 
short (150 pages) discussion of the 
uses of radium. At ten minutes of 
ten our Grind methodically collects 
his books and returns to his room to 
finish his book. 

After what seemed like sensible, civilized action by the An 
herst College Student Council which prohibited the physical lun 
ing of freshmen, the unanimous vote of this council was ov. 
ridden last week when the student body voted to retain hazing 
The basis for dissentation was reported to be that the coun< i 
did not have jurisdiction over intra-fraternity affairs. Whether 
this statement is justifiable depends only on the point of vi» v 
adopted. The council ruling was made in behalf of the freshmc i. 
since it was felt that much of the current poor scholarship among 
the freshmen was caused by hazing interfering with studying 
the ruling was not made against the fraternities. 

One must go more deeply into the matter to get at 
the basic reasons for retaining physical hazing. The pro- 
ponents of hazing affirm that some physical punishment 
is "beneficial and stimulating to the freshmen," to quote 
an opinion expressed in the Student. Another argument 
often advanced is, "They whacked the 'tar' out of me 
when I was a freshman, so why shouldn't — " Thus it 
becomes apparent that the benefits of stimulating the 
circulation in the region of the spinal terminal, and retri- 
bution for past injustices are two of the points in favor 

of hazing. 

A former student of Ohio State was recounting an incident 
that occured there during Hell Week. In the fourth day one fresh- 
man, a lad six feet two and a vigorous athlete, was participating 
in "Prayer Meeting," as the wholesale paddling parties are called

Running against the cream of the

a surprising showing in the Conn.

last week, were forced to content 
themselves with 11th place in the

The team title was won by the Uni-

lowed by Connecticut with 73. Maine 
Captain Don Smith set a new course 
record while finishing first for the 
third year in a row, something which 
has never been done before. The fin-

The Rensselaer Polytechnic, official 
newspaper of the Institute, has under- 
gone a violent change of policy since 
their football team went out and won 
four games for themselves. 

Last year, the Polytechnic was se- 
riously discussing dropping football 
entirely. And on page seven there was 
a very small article about the team. 
But what a difference since the Cher- 
ry and White started scoring touch- 
downs. Now the Tutemen rate front 
page news. In fact, they are rated 
above Cordell Hull (who only got two 
columns in the lower right hand cor- 
ner) and above the Bob Cats, famed 
orchestra of Bob Crosby, (which had 
to be content with a back page). The 
least the Polytechnic might do would 
be to feature consistency in their 

And football news that is news! 
Ralph Simmons, sterling guard 
of the Statesmen, was picked by 
the National Football News for 
the position of guard on the 
mythical All-Eastern football 
team. The news went right out 
on a limb, calling Simmons the 
best lineman in New England, 
and in that we whole-heartedly 

Simmons was then nominated for 
the position by Coaches Keaney and 
Adam Walsh, of Rhode Island State 
and Bowdoin, and Lloyd Jordan, coach 
of the Amherst football eleven, said 
of Simmons, "He is the best guard in 
New England." 

We certainly believe that Ralph 
Simmons deserves all this praise and 
more. He has shown himself to be 
an outstanding player, making the 
greater percentage of tackles and pro

One of the most successful Rens-

will attempt to gain revenge against 
the Statesmen this Saturday at Alum- 
ni field before a capacity Dads' Day 

The traditionally weak Rensselaer 
team is quite the opposite this year, 
for the Engineers possess a starting 
lineup with nine lettermen and con- 
stitute the heaviest team that State 
has met this year. Their line aver- 
ages 184 pounds and includes a for- 
midable and experienced end in 
Hoover and an outstanding tackle in 
Day both of whom play on the left 
side of the line. 

Coach Duke Nelson believes in 
orthodox football, the style which is 
best suited for his rugged and heavy 
players. In the entirely veteran back- 
fiehl Nelson relies on 190 pound Cap- 
tain Shako at fullback for the pass- 
ing and spinner plays. The punter 
for the 'Tutemen is little 150 pound 
Schwartz at left half who is a tal- 
ented left-footed hooter. 

Hy all comparative- records, the 
Rensselaer Engineers have a power- 
ful team indeed, for they defeated 
Vermont who won over Amherst. The 
Nelsonmen also tied W. P. I. and lost 
to Union and Trinity. 

BiOliy Freitas will probably be 
out of the lineup due to the injury to 
his ankle. Also there is a possibility 
that Ruddie Evans will not be in

Schoonmaker Sparks TeamfTo Win 
As Booters Defeat Engineers 3 to 1 

IxmI by Captain Brown and sparked 
by the accurate toe of Jim Schoon- 
maker, the Massachusetts State Col- 
lege varsity soccer team brought its 
1 !>:'.!> season to a successful close with 
a 3 to 1 victory over the engineers 
from M. I. T. State assumed the 
lead early in the first period and nev- 
er was headed throughout the game. 

The first score came when Schoon- 
maker was awarded a penalty kick 
after an M. I. T. player was detected 
pushing in the penalty area. Schoon- 
maker cleanly beat the engineer's 

column, and by achieving the always 
difficult "hat trick," Schoonmaker im- 
proved his standing in the individual 
scoring race in the soccer league. 
Schoonmaker finally came into his 
own as a scoring threat in the State 
offensive, and he was helped im- 
measurably by Mullaney, Gould, 
Rowen, and Buckley, his mates in 
the State forward line. Goalie Silver- 
man turned in a sparkling perform- 
ance-, and was ably assisted by the 
always dependable Jacobek, Captain 
Brown, Burr, Howe, and Eriekson.

Continued from Page 6 
song, was the keynote of the concert, 
also contributing to its uniqueness. 
Marsilio's experience in several op- 
eras enabled him to interpret with 
complete feeling. Schubert, the first 
great Program Music composer, 
wrote the quick-tempoed souk. Unged- 
uhi. which was about a lover's pas- 
sion for a miller's (laughter; and 
here, Marsilia in it inserted a full 
emotional exuberance, resulting in 
what may be called the ideal song 
in terms of Program Music. 

Many listeners Monday night liked 
the form of the songs without re- 
alizing the early Romanticists' solu- 
tion to the problem of coinciding 
symetry of art (unity and variety) 
with the exposition or the "story" of 
the song. This subtle unity was gain- 
ed through rhythm and recapitula- 
tion of the first few lines. 

Moderns, too, were represented 
first in the Toccata (Trovillo's solo 
in Section VI), a work by one of the 
leading half-dozen composers of to- 
day, Prokofieff. And a cowboy ballad 
by a native, honest-to-goodness Tex- 
an, Oscar Fox, occurred in Marsilia's 
last group. Whoever has heard The 
Hilts of Home can realize why it 
stands in the ranks of good music; 
here was a good illustration of the 
American folk song. 

The final encores were Thine 
Alone (from one of Victor Herbert's 
operettas) and the ever-popular, sen- 
timental Because. 

As a singer Marsilia has a good 
start on the road to recognition. His 
stage presence is yet to be fully de- 
veloped; still, he transmits his infec- 
tious personality to the audience, and 
he has that knack of pouring out 
emotion like a faucet, this being a 
result, among other factors, of his 
acting ability. He easily expressed a 
light mirth and flightiness, as in the 
encore, La Donne Immobile from Rig- 
eletto by Verdi. 

His accomplishments show a fresh 
talent. The delivery of his songs de- 
manded a wide range and a skilled 
vocal technique (more especially in 
Border Ballad by Sir Frederic H. 
Cowen). The ability to sing long- 
breathed phrases (Head's When I 
Think Upon the Maidens) was con- 
sistently noticeable. The tasteful ac- 
companiment added to his perform- 
ances unobstrusively, the result be- 
ing a successful concert. 
Liberty Again 
"Gee, it's swell to be back in the 
United States and be able to sing 
German lieder again," said the young 
tenor with a broad grin to Profes- 
sor Goding; Marsilia has just come 
from his northern Canadian tour 
where German compositions were 
TABOO on account of World War II.

wrestling, fencing, swimming, tennis, 
track, and a humorous depiction of a 
dancing couple. 

Lambda Chi Alpha presented 
"Foley's Follies"; Kappa Sigma, "Life 
of a Student at Massachusetts State 
College"; Theta Chi, "Fraternity 
Side-show"; Alpha Kpsilon Pi, "Dance 
Pageants." The first, "Foley's Fol- 
lies," was a burlesque on the Old 
Howard burlesque; the lumbering "fe- 
male" pony chorus gave the usual 
choreographical routine in pink tights 
and pink gauze l O match; the Apache 
Dance, direct from the slums of 
Paris, resulted in hilariously humor- 
ous duet; the "Follies" included other 
realistic touches. 

Kappa Sigma gave a Ted Shawn 
interpretation of the life of a State 
College student. The "Earth" sec- 
tion began the skit with a satire on 
college "grinding" and the Aggie as- 
pect on campus. The "Water" Sec- 
tion represented the more pleasant 
college activities, such as social life 
and sports; in this part Joseph Jodka 
'42 revealed an accomplished talent in 
dancing in his role as Solo Artist. 
The "Air" or culminating movements 
marked the conclusion of a college 
career with accompanying oratory. 
The pianist, like Jess Meeker in the 
Shawn show, was in formal clothes, 
un-technically called "soup and fish"; 
his accompaniment included snatches 
of popular and college songs to sup- 
plement the stage work. 

Theta Chi's "Fraternity Side-Show" 
featured a true-to-life circus barker 
whose technique was flawless, ges- 
tures, speech and dress completing 
the effect. Students planted in the 
audience contributed an amazing in- 
novation. It was a satire of the tra- 
ditional conception of a side-show, 
complete with strong-arm men, Hou- 
dini escape artists and "seductive" 
young ladies, as the Oriental dancer. 
State College's football star, Ralph 
Simmons, impersonated the Siamese 
twins and incidentally raised the roof, 
though unassisted in the act. 
Alpha Epsilon Pi's "Dance Pag- 
eant" traced the evolution of the 
dance from theold-fashioned waltz to 
the Washington Hop. The aesthetic

concrete examples of what might be 
indicated as a reduction of the work 
of the College in the field of Agri- 
culture or unfair treatment of agri-

fact, the answer usually is "Well,

in making this general statement 
that the College is in any sense nn the 
defensive as to its work in Agricul-

has always been an outstanding lead- 
er in the field of Agriculture and it 
is my bopS and belief that it will 
continue to exercise such leadership, 
and that even in a state which is 
largely Industrial.

about Cigarette Tobaccos 

There are four types 

of tobaccos found in the more popular 
cigarettes, namely. . . Bright, Maryland, 
Bur ley and Turkish. 

ALL THESE TOBACCOS except Turkish (which is 
bought direct from the planters in Turkey and Greece) 
and Maryland (which is bought through sealed bids 
under government supervision) are bought at public 
auction, just like any other auction where you might 
have bought in a table or a chair. 

AT THE AUCTION SALE the tobacco is piled in 
baskets weighing from about 100 to 500 pounds and 
each purchaser buys all of his tobaccos by competitive 
bidding for the particular piles he wants. 

these mild ripe tobaccos for the Chesterfield blend. 
And it is Chesterfield's Combination ... the right amounts 
of Burley and Bright . . . just enough Maryland . . . and 
just enough Turkish— that makes the big difference 
between Chesterfield and other cigarettes. 

It IS BECAUSE of this combination 
that Chesterfields are COOLER, have 
MILDER. They are made of the world's 
best cigarette tobaccos. You cant buy 
a better cigarette.

Such an unfortunate soul is 
Jim "small but speedy" Buckley. 
Ever since the football season be- 
gan, Jim has been keeping us in 
coke money. The Springfield 
youth cannot pick a winner. Even 
last week when he picked Dart- 
mouth over Cornell, "a sure 
thing." the tide went against him, 
and Cornell won. Therefore, in 
order that Jim and those others 
who have yet to win a football 
bet might know how the experts 
pick them, we make the follow- 
ing predictions. 

After picking Princeton over Yale 
last week by a score of 13 to 7 — 
right on the nose — and picking a tie 
between Wisconsin and Purdue, we 
feel that we are quite an authority — 
or rather, quite an oracle. However, 
we don't want to give our own selec- 
tions, without first presenting the 
selections of other experts. 

We interviewed several experts 
separately, and it is interesting to

"For many years, Massachusetts

We appreciate so very fully that be- 
yond the frontiers which we have

worlds. It is our hope that our ex-

world of the Americas. How it fas- 
cinates us to read and think of the 
men and women who explored and 
settled the great West. We are in- 
deed all explorers in life and to me 
it seems that exploring gives a prom- 
ise of new worlds beyond the fron- 
tiers which we now know. It is per-

SUMMER Last week's Collegian story that stated that there 
SCHOOL would be no summer school at the college in 1940 
may have been a bit premature. Latest information 
on the subject tells us that the decision has not yet been made 
but will be handed down by the Board of Trustees following their 
winter meeting in January. 

There are many ideas why the announcement that there 
would be no summer school was made. There is no question that 
the college has to cut expenses in some way and the administra- 
tion feels that to do away with the summer sessions would hurt 
the smallest number of people. Some feel that the administration 
made the announcement as a "feeler" to see if there would be 
many objections raised by the students or other interested par- 
ties. Another idea on the subject is that the college is trying to 
follow the plan used about eight years ago when the college dis- 
continued summer school for one year with the idea of opening it 
the next with an increased program and an increased budget. This 
plan failed, however, because the following summer when the 
school <>p< tied again there were less students than when it had 
closed and the program had suffered rather than been improved. 

While the summer school will be discontinued if the adminis- 
tration's plan is passed by the trustees, the college will still run 
its nature summer school that will offer to a special group of stu- 
dents six credits of summer work in their major. The fact that 
the nature school is to remain open, may be because the school is 
run on funds that do not come from the regular budget, we don't 
know, but in the light of the fact that many students with other 
majors would like to take special work in the summer, it. seems, 
to many, unfair to offer courses to some and to deny them to 

There are three types of students at the summer school ses- 
sions. One "roup is made up of high school or grade school teach- 
ers who arc taking extra credits in education toward an advanced 
degree, there are the undergraduates who are taking summer 
courses in subjects they could not fit into there regular schedule, 
and, of course, there are the undergraduates taking courses to 
make up credits they had failed during the regular college year. 

Of these groups, the first two have a right to feel slighted by 
the dropping of summer school, and all three groups will be heavi- 
ly penalized financially as it will be a much more expensive matter 
for them to attend other summer schools that are not state sup- 

Without cutting the budgets of any other departments it 
seems possible that the college might be able to continue the sum- 
mer sessions if funds from the University Extension were sent 
here for the purpose. The University Extension pays professors 
from many Massachusetts colleges and universities to lecture at 
various points in the stale on a wide assortment of subjects. It 
is a service run by the state department of education and has 
offered summer courses iii some of our state teachers colleges. 

It would seem a good idea for the administration or the 
trustees 1o try to interest the University Extension in holding 
summer lectures on this campus in 1940.

We know that the use of the \.n

that they were inspired with the >|.

pioneers in exploring in the field

know that their accomplishment wa 
the result of an inspiration and a zea 
for service to their fellowmen. Ce 
tainly what these men contributed t

result of a passionate desire to un 
cover what had been hidden Mcreti 
in their particular fields. 

do Herrick, sports editor for the Dux- 
bury Chronicle during the summer 
months, picked Harvard over Yale by 
B score of 21-0. Art Noyes bets Oil 
Harvard, l!>-7. Nelson the barber, who 
is no slouch when it comes to pick- 
ing winners, thinks Harvard will take 
it by a score of 14-7. John Osmun 
also takes Harvard, 14-7. However, 
we believe that there is no such thing 
as a sure winner, and pick Yale over 
Harvard, 18-6. (It's fixed.) 

Most of the interviewed ex- 
perts shied away from the Tufts- 
State game. Herrick picked State 
by the score of 7-6. Waketield 
tells us State is going to win by 
a touchdown. 14-6. Myron Hager 
sees a win for State, 12-7. John 
Swenson. who picked Harvard 
over Vale, picks State by one 
point. Here are the facts. Mass. 
State has scored 60 points. Tafia 
40. Tufts beat Williams. Wil- 
liams heat Amherst. Amherst 
beat State; Howdoin beat State 
by (he points, and Tufts by nine. 
On the basis of this record which 
we cannot understand, and realiz- 
ing that the State team doesn't 
get going until after the fatal 
first ten minutes, we pick Tufts 
by two touchdowns. 
We also pick Colgate over Colum- 
bia — but we don't believe it. (But, 
Jim picked Columbia.) And, in ease

This campus has managed to Mir- 
vive, in the past, that disease of the 
female brain which makes the coeds 
decide to wear hair ribbons and rub- 
ber boots and beer jackets and pork 
pies and Ellis Island kerchiefs — but 
the latest affliction is becoming a seri- 
ous problem. We refer to the knee 
sock epidemic, which is spreading like 
the proverbial wild fire all over cam- 

After all, heretofore the lovely 
Amherst scenery has not been matted 
too greatly — we might even go so 
far as to say it has rather been en- 
hanced (well, in a few cases any- 
way) by the legs of the coeds. But 
now things have come to a pretty 
pass. All one can see are feminine 
extremities completely indiscreetly, 
and horribly clad in high woolen 
stockings of colors no self-respecting 
rainbow would even recognize. 

The bright red ones are really 
something. Our candid opinion is that 
it is too much to expect of a man 
struggling to an 8 o'clock class half 
asleep to stand the sight of about a 
hundred wooly scarlet-clad legs 
marching to class — and each pair 
bearing atop them a coed who is try- 
ing valiantly to convey the idea "I 
don't care — they're nice and war, so 

Origin in Doubt 
But the big question seems to be 
where on earth did these socks ever 

come from'.' Undoubtedly the Botan) 
department would support the theory 

that these new socks are but a w.-t i 
gial remain from the days when fem- 
inine underpinning! may have really 
looked like that. ((Josh, how did those 
dames do it with such a drawback?) 
Could be, too, that these things 
evolved from the ankle sock because 
of need for protection, or through 
adaptation to the winters in this part 
of the country. This sudden idea 
might, however, be more evidence 
that a glacier passed by five or six 
million years ago, melting and de- 
positing a pair of these atrocities atop 
Mount Tom where Mountain Day 
enthusiasts brought them back to Am- 
herst. These socks may even prove 
that Venus should show phases, since 
the first pair must have been pur- 
chased in the dark. Science regrets to 
say it is stumped. Economics might, 
however, have the more simple solu- 
tion — maybe it just proves that a 
women will buy ANYTHING. Harnum 
probably had the right idea about 
suckers and coeds. 



Oh well, all we can do is hope sin- 
cerely that the darn stockings are 
not habit-forming. Once one begins 
wearing them one undoubtedly dies 
of pneumonia without them — ain't 
life hard and awful? It looks as if we 
are doomed to a winter of knee socks. 

"BUT THEY'RE WARM" say the 
coeds. What can you do?

Guest Columnist: Chbt Kuralowicz 
job college saves democracy 

"WAR!" is today's chief topic of discussion and speculation. 
On this subject over a dozen books have boon published since Hit- 
ler's ride into Prague. And the rising question of current inter- 
est is: What are we who are in college to do about the prevention 
of war? 

Collegiate editorials in a great majority of undergraduate 
newspapers urge students to take a deeper concern over contem- 
| porary affairs and to organize against war. "A crisis in world 
affairs is now manifesting itself in the form of a major European 
war. Yet . . . the students here do not know or else they do not 
care that civil liberties have been curtailed in most European 
countries and that these same liberties are threatened with extinc- 
tion in our country . . ." 

The article, under a column titled "Public Opinion" in the 
Mount Holyoke News, continued by mentioning the poor student 
attendance at a series of lectures "to discuss the issues of the 
European conflict and its effect on our country and on democracy" 
and ended by predicting the loss "of our freedom and our democ- 
racy, unless we awaken from our intellectual lethargy." In the 
same issue the editorials were on successful hazing and campus 
bicycles; headlines told of the evening's big dance; and tucked 
away in corners were little write-ups of the speeches on "Democ- 
racy" and "Embargo*." 

So it is. In spite of a large number of speakers and a greater 
number of editorial writers and peace groups (Princeton's Isola- 
tionist League, the United Student Peace Committee, ad infini- 
tum), students still pay more attention to tomorrow's quiz, next 
week's Ball, and coming prospects for the basketball season than 
they do to the coming war. But we lose nothing when the majority 
of students ignore the world situation. We have seen enough of 
anti-war societies and peace congresses among college and youth 
organizations to realize their futility. 

At a Boston anti-war meeting last year we saw an utter 
waste of days for all but those students majoring in government, 
history, or current affairs. Then, too, we were reminded of the 
Young Men's Peace Society formed in London in 1914; came the 
declaration of war, the parades, the stirring music and the jing- 
oistic speeches, and the entire peace society — to the last man — 
enlisted !

There is a care* 

ful sense of detail in the street 
scenes, and the buildings of the city 
lend themselves easily to a casual, un- 
hurried treatment, Even the crowds 
in these city etchings, such as in

Londonish air (al least, we assume 
it to be Londonish) with no sense 
of brusque modernity. 

Nahant Shore Lines 
Miss Elder shows some versatility, 
for in this same exhibition she verg- 
es to landscapes chiefly of the .Va- 
liant shore line. Her technique is ex- 
ceptional in these; she is able to 
give accurately the solid, physical na- 
ture of such divergent things as sky 
and water ami rocks and people, and 
yet the only possible changes in this 
medium are through shading and dif-

especially noticeable in such an etch-

scenic etchings, is reminiscent of

Freitas and Allan to Pace State With Passes in Traditional Tufts Game \Seery - Skogsberg Pass Sets [Up State smen For 7 -7 Tie With Rensselaer 


/;,// Bert Hym an. Sport* r:>iit<>r 


The close of soccer activities this season marks more than 
merely the eliding of a 60-50 season, more than just the last year 
many' of the fellows will play on the team. For this year saw the 
completion of the tenth year of soccer at Massachusetts State. 

A grand reunion and banquet have been planned for over 
100 soccer alumni of the college, and the affair will be held at 
the Faculty Club House on Saturday, December 9, at seven o'clock, 
The committee in charge of the affair has been very 
busy planning a fitting celebration, and this is as it 
should be, for State College has long bemoaned the lack 
of alumni support. By showing the alumni that the col- 
lege is interested in them, a better understanding be- 
tween the groups will eventually be brought about. This 
celebration will have, moreover, a two-fold purpose: the 
obvious one, to get together a group of alumni with com- 
mon interests and friendships; and secondly, to honor 
Coach Larry Briggs for his splendid work during the 
last decade. 

Coach Briggs has certainly put out some great soccer teams 
in the years that he has been here, and even the relatively weak 
showing of this year's team cannot be shunted aside. The 1939 
club won three of its six league games, and finished well up in 
the New England Intercollegiate Soccer League standings. 

Besides the banquet, plans include guest speakers, movies 
of past and recent soccer games; and the inauguration of a "news- 
letter-system" among the soccer alumni. This affair should be 
only the first in a long series that ought to go a long way toward 
cementing the bonds between the alumni and the college proper. 

* * * 

And more football news! A letter from a Bowdoin alumnus 
was received by Coach Caraway this week, advising him in no 
uncertain terms to beware of a certain Tufts player. 

The Jumbo gridman, Ralph Sherry, was accused of being the 
dirtiest ball player ever seen by the alumnus. He was also said 
to be a bully on the field, inflicting unnecessary bodily punishment 
on his opponents whenever he could get away with it. 

And the letter from the Polar Bear Alumnus went on to say 
that State should warn the referee to be on the watch for all his

State's 'M soccer season, featured 
by the team's steady improvement, is 
ended— with a Massachusetts State 


Our booters started the season by 
losing to R. P. I. (not in the league) 
0-4 and to Dartmouth 1-6. Then came 
a 2-1 win over Connecticut Universi- 
ty, a 0-2 defeat at the hands of the 
Springfield College Gymnasts, a 2-0 
victory over Trinity, a 1-2 setback 
administered by the Jeffs, and a 8-1 
win over M. I. T.— in that order. Rut 
these are just badly stated scores. 
Rehind them is the following which 
Soccer Coach Briggl calls "the key 
to this season's record." 

It goes back four years when 
Coach Larry Briggl changed his 
Strategy from the orthodox or tandem 
formation to the third back game pre- 
valent in the English League today. 
Cooper, Podalak, and Auerbach hand- 
led this new system. The loss of these 
three men by graduation left the 
system without a base as far as State 
was concerned this season. Coach 
Rriggs didn't expect the loss to be 
quite so serious as the scores of the 
first two games this season would in- 
dicate. Then after the Dartmouth 
game, Coach shifted the type of play 
from the third back game to the old 
orthodox or tandem formation. 

This year, the soccer team had an 
outstanding player in goalie Vernon 
Smith whom Coach Briggl rates as 
"one of the best in recent years for 
State." E i I ckl o n . center-halfback. 
while not outstanding, deserves men- 
tion ton. His game was highlighted 
by constant improvement. 

It's always difficult to h>ok ahead to 

a following season in view of one just 

concluded. As for the relation between 
this year's soccer club and next 
year's team, this much is definite. 
State will miss these seniors: Ruck- 
ley who scored the two goals that 
beat Connecticut; Rowen who set up 
many tallies as well as being the 
team's leading scorer himself; 
Schoonmaker who against M. 1. T. 

pulled what is known in soccer [tar- 
lance as the hat trick — three consecu- 
tive goals; Ackroyd, a hard working 
player lost to State because of his 
year at Fitchburg; Art Howe, best 
when the going is toughest; Jacobek, 


Showing signs of a definite im- 
provement, Coach Derby's varsity har- 
riers came out with a close 27-28 win 
over Trinity at Hartford last Fri- 
day. This victory gives the Maroon 
an even break for the season. 

The race was hotly contested from 
start to finish with the runners close- 
ly bunched due to the short, fast 
course. Caffrey of the Hartfordites 
who came in first was forced to a 
near record time of 17 minutes, 27.3 
seconds by Captain Putney of the 
Maroon who took second honors. 

The surprising event of the meet 
was the fact that Putney defeated 
Rosen of Trinity who came in third, 
because in the Conn. Valley Meet both 
Caffrey and Rosen defeated the Ma- 
roon leader. Kimball of State copped 
fourth place honors closely followed 
by Smell ie of the Blue and Gold. 

At this point the Trinitymen were 
leading, but an influx of three States- 
men, Copson in sixth place, and Mor- 
rill and Bunk tied for seventh gave 
the Maroon and White the necessary 
margin for victory, in spite of the 
fact that two Trinitymen, Charles 
and Riley took ninth and tenth place. 

The State frosh were not as fort- 
unate as the varsity for the yearling 
meet ended up 28-86 in favor of 
Trinity. However, MacDonald and 
Morowski of State placed second and 
third respectively. Clorite, who took 
ninth place was the only other Ma- 
roon frosh to finish in the first ten. 

Another soccer season has been 
closed and chalked up in the record 
books, and again another freshman 
soccer team has come out on the long 
end of a 1 to score in a game with 
their traditional rivals, the sopho- 
mores. Last Thursday afternoon 
Alumni Field was the scene of this 
traditional battle. By virtue of their 
win the yearlings earned the right to 
wear their class numerals. 

Both teams played on fairly even 
terms throughout the whole game 
with neither side being able to punch 
home a score. It was, finally, a pen- 
alty kick that did all the damage. 
The frosh were awarded a penalty 
kick, and were quick to take advan- 
tage of it. Dougie Allen, the plebe 
center forward, was called upon to 
make the kick, and he booted the ball 
past goalie Pearson for the only 
score of the game. The sophs tried to 
push in the equalizer, but all their 
attempts were in vain, and when the 
final whistle blew, the score still read, 
freshmen 1, sophomores 0. 

Doug Allen was constantly a threat 
to the soph defense, and was ably 
aided by Captain Allen, Bordeau, 
Casper, and Brown. Podolak, the 
younger brother of Stan Podolak, 
erstwhile State soccer great, played 
a brilliant game at right fullback. 
He looked like a veteran out there 
turning back the soph assaults time 
and time again. From all appearances 
he seems destined to fill the spot left 
by his brother. Podolak was given 
valuable assistance in keeping the 
frosh goal unsullied, by Jarvis, Vet- 
terling, Podmeyer, and Cykowski. 
The rival goalies, Banes for the frosh 
and Pearson for the sophs turned in 
fine performances. Hibbard. Double-

according to State's standing in the 

Mew England Soccer League it was 

quite successful when you consider 

the type of opposition state encoun-

until hist year or this year, the fact 
that in one week the team had to 
make a complete change of strategy. 
In Coach Briggs' own wonls, "We 
played 500$ hall, and still more Im- 
portant, we improved so steadily that 
at the end of the season we could 
battle any club in New England on 
even terms."

The fact that records mean almost 
nothing in a rivalry like that of 
State and Tufts makes an effective 
comparison of these team's perform 
ances almost impossible. 
Air Attack 
State's success all season has beer, 
proportional to the success of its 
aerial attack. Combined with the 
statement in "Beaker" Smith's scout 
ing report that Tufts is weak on flat 
pass defense, this fact would be a 
real trick in Caraway's deck if — and 
what a big "if" this is — if Don Allen 
and Benny Freitas can thorough!) 
floor old man injury by Saturday. If 
they do, the Maroon and White will 
be in fine fettle to face the invading 
Griffin-men. And John Seery wh. 
started the winning drive in the 
Coast Guard game by completing a 
pass to Skogsberg, might well be 

Big Line 
The Tufts club will have the edge 
in size with a line featured by tw. 
rugged veteran tackles, Haselton and 
Sherry. These boys pull out wheii 
triple-threat Griffin, captain and 
quarterback, calls for plays originat 
ing from Tufts' favorite formation— 
a double wing-back. Coach Manley has 
two good ends in Smith and Hana 
bury, but, nevertheless, according to 
Smith's report, the Jumbos' left end 
is quite vlunerable. So look for sonx 
sweeps around right end by Stab 
Another thing, Tufts lacks reserves 
too many men have to play sixt\ 
minutes of ball. Therefore, a part of 
State's strategy will be to use a slash 
ing game from the start in an effort 
to wear down the Brown and Blu. 
Tufts likes full spinners, double re 
verses, and plenty of good passes with 
Griffin heaving and Hanahury r. 

The marked man on the Tuft' 
squad is Harrison. Dependable on .!• 
fense, he is a good climax runner too 
Though slowed by a slightly bad I, 
he is Tufts key offense man. In Kt 
Caraway's words, "To beat Tuft> 
State will have to stop Harrison." 


Competition in the Interfraternity 
sports is becoming more and more 
intense. This is the case in the soccer 
leagues more than the football 
leagues. At this writing there are 
triple ties in three of the four soccer 
leagues which slows up the elimina- 
tions considerably.

of 18 to and Phi Sig blanked T. E.

the football situation leaving Q. T.

Chi champions of their respective 
leagues. In the soccer leagues, S. A. 
E. defeated Theta Chi 2 to 1 Creating 
a triple tie in league C necessitating

Tufts Trying Hard For Victory 

Against Statesmen, Says 

Capt. Griffin 

Hi/ Art Griffin 
(Tufts Football Captain) 

It is a little too early to predict 
the outcome of the Tufts-State game 
but Tufts will be working its hard- 
est for a victory. It is a game that all 
of Tufts is looking forward to and 
the Jumbos fully realize that the 
State team of this year is one of the 
strongest in recent years. 

The Tufts squad, so far, has shap- 
ed up very well. All of the fellows 
are in very good condition as is prov- 
en by the fact that in the first four 
games to date, the Jumbos have used 
an average of 12 men per game. 

There are 10 men on the Tufts 
team this year who faced State last 
year. There has been no brilliant, in- 
j dividual player, rather, the fellows 
| have been working as a unit. Hecause 
of this cooperation shown by every 
individual played, we feel certain that 
we will have a fairly successful sea- 
son, in spite of the losses sustained 
so far. 

If the Tufts football team can con- 
tinue with the spirit shown thus 
far, Massachusetts State will be in 
for a pretty tough afternoon when 
the two teams meet on November 2 r >. 

This game will be the 87th in the 
long rivalry existing between the two

This year, unlike 1988, II Ml eas- 
ier to y;et statements from the coach- 
es regarding the outcome of the State- 
Tufts name 

Said Coach Caraway of State, 
"Everything depends upon the way 
my boys shape up physically. Four 
of the hacktield have had leg.-, hut 
if they recover III time for the name, 
then State will certainly go to town." 
Freitas, Bullock and Allan are on the 
injured list, and Kvans was hurt 
in the Rensselaer game. 

Baekfield Coach, Lou Hush, put 
everything squarely up to the play- 
ers, saying that if the boys played 
real football the team would come 

Dill Prigard, too, put the result 
of the game on the shoulders of the 
players, saying "There are eleven 
men on each team, but our eleven will 
fight hard and play hard football to 
get the win they deserve." 

Head Coach T. w Manly of Tufts 
said, "I feel that the game will be 
hard-fought and well-played. Here 
at Tufts we know that State's team 
this year is stronger than last year'n 
aggregation, and that the team's rec- 
ord to date fails to reveal their true 
power and ability. Records in the 
past have meant little when Tufts 
and Massachusetts State have met, 
and we all know that it will lie as 
true this year as in the past. The 
Jumbos are looking forward to their 
hardest game." 

Captain Art Griffin of Tufts echoed 
Coach Manly, saying that Tufts 
would be playing their hardest game 
of the season.

Student demonstrations, idealized mob action, be- 
come tragically futile as Saturday's newspaper headlines 
testify. Nine Czech students executed, 1200 other stu- 
dents arrested, and Czech universities closed for three 
years. And the result? Blaring headlines in English and 
American journals and good propaganda. 
War is nothing to be bowled over with a fusillade &t words. 
War is not a result of people wanting to play the knight-errant to 
save sweet Democracy. The sole method of keeping our country 
out of war is through federal legislation. Unless we are idealists, 
we cannot deny that million-dollar industries affect our legislation 
In peace-or war-time. There its rests— will our collegiate agitation 
and our collegiate societies affect the policy of our nation more 
than big business who would put millions of employees out of 
work if war industries (airplane manufacture, for example) were 
discontinued in accordance with a strict policy of neutrality. 

Definite Influence 
We do not urge college students to neglect completely foreign 
affairs. However, what definite influence on the future of this 
nation has the student, who is not of legal age, who has no more 
voice in the government than the horse on the college milk wagon 
if he is of voting age, and who is more concerned over hazing an./ 
passing his Zoology 99 exam? Why waste an undue proportion of 
our time at college on things beyond our scope or power? As col- 
lege students, it is not our duty to ourselves or to our country, 
quixotically to charge at wind-mills, reforming the world. It is 
our duty, though, to spend the main part of our college life in 
working to acquire an education, culture, and a sound reasoning 
power to make intelligent decisions when we are in a position 
to make decisions— all of which will make us good citizens in the 
future, then coping with war and not placing the responsibility 
on our sons and daughters who will be in college.

Monday Night— Robert 

Carpenter Soloist 

Doric Alviani has just announced a 
special concert of Christmas music 
to be presented by the combined glee 
clubs, choir, and orchestra, with Rob 
Carpenter as baritone soloist. The 
program will be presented next Mon- 
day evening, December 11, in Bow- 
ker Auditorium, Stockbridge Hall, at 
8:15 p.m. A large outside attendance 
is expected from Greenfield, Deer- 
field, and Northampton, since the af- 
fair will be open to the public; but j 
the concert has been set late in the 
evening purposely to make it con- 
venient for fraternity and sorority 
groups to attend after their regular 
weekly meetings. 

The purpose of such an extensive 
program this year is to inaugurate 
annual Christmas concerts as a tra- 
dition at Massachusetts State Col- 
lege. Monday's presentation will in- 
clude stirring excerpts from Handel's 
great oratorio "The Messiah"; au- 
thentic old English carols from the 
Oxford Booh of Carols, re-arranged 
for chorus by Peter Warlock and 
Vaughn Williams; a beautiful Latin 
carol, and also one Polish and one

Regardless of what has taken pi*

the groups interested and particuia

College shall continue to take inters

that if the student body at the

College is fortunate in having a givj

The story of this campaign is a story of cheapness and ^^'J^^lT^ 
gratitude that will be hard to match. Two years ago an obscure JJJJS are invited to attend, par 
young fellow showed up at State badly in need oi work to pay 
some of his expenses while he continued his studies. A graduate 
of State, anil a former football near-great, this new graduate 
student had been a teacher in a large eastern high school only to 
lose his job when his health failed him. Naturally his first move on 
looking for a job was to turn to the physical education department 
where he had close friends and where he was sure he would be 
able to do a good job in what ever capacity he was cast. There 
weren't jobs in the department to hand out, however, and Ebb 
Caraway and Director Hicks made a position for the fellow let- 
ting him assist with the coaching. 

The graduate student turned in a good job last season and 
this season was assigned to scout some of State's football oppon- 
ents, Again he turned in a good job- -perhaps too good, because 
his head got a few sizes too large for his hat and following the 
unfortunate Tufts game his campaign against Ebb began. Ho 
first tried to get football players to join with him in knifing the 
man who had given him his .job. From the football players he 

jumped to some members of the faculty and certain students, 

spreading false stories and disregarding obvious facts. 

Anyone who knows the circumstances of material, schedule, 
finances, etc. that had to do with this season's record will be move 
than willing to admit that Ebb has done a good job. He made some 
mistakes, naturally, but he commanded the reaped of his team 
find his opponents a good indication of ability.

mud-slinger. As Senator Glass once said: "Why use dynamite

everyone came in under discus-

a third coed came in and pre-

Only two girls will be taken out of

The art exhibition in the Memorial 
Building this week is a \aried col- 
lection of etchings, lithographs, dry 
points, wood cuts, wash drawings, 
brush drawing!, and pencil drawings 

by modern American artists. It 

would seem that so many media 
would jumble the exhibition, but to 
the average observer the distinctions 
I let Ween them are not too ureat, and 
his main interests are in the differ 
ences of style and subject matter. 

Judging by some of the work shown 
there still remains considerable em- 
phasis on realism in American art. 
That almost characteristic urge to 
show conditions as they are, to show 
the common people as they live is 
shown in such work as the pencil 
drawing WaiPin<l by Alfred Sessler. 
In this, the men air- made grotesque, 
are misshapen to create a none too 
happy, but a living effect. In much 
the same vein are Traffic, a wood cut 
bq Kamp, ami Weddiny Bureau, a 
lithograph by Don Freeman. The lat- 
ter combines a satirical slant on hu- 
man life with a tinge of earthy hu- 

In a completely different style and 
mood is the etching Timers by E. 
Rungius Fulda. Here is no attempt 
to parade faults and weaknesses, and 
yet this etching of two tigers — one 
sleepy, the other alert— has some- 
thing lasting in character and ex- 
pression. The tiger sitting sharply 
up shows exceptionally clever treat- 

The lithograph \1lol1e Interior by 
Mabel Dwight- a familiar name in 
this field— shows equally careful por- 
trayals of both the simple room and 
the motionless woman.

Bernard Fox 

To all and sundry— and especially 
to those who have objected to certain 
conditions and practice* In the music 
room: there is in effect a new policy, 
storting this week. First, there have 

I „ manv objections to smoking, so 

no more smoking will be allowed m 
the music room. Heretofore there has 
been some handling of the machine 
without the permission of the Oper- 
ator. Now that we have a new ma- 
chine, and one whose performance will 
warm the hearts of those who appre- 
ciate such things, there will be ab- 
solutely no handling of the recorder, 
with or without the operator's per- 

Although not many complaints have 
been registered on this account, it 
is well known that many people who 
mine in to hear a special piece of 
music never Ret to hear it played he- 
cause of the great number of people 
there before them. Also, hecause of 
this, many who would ordinarily fre- 
quent the room much more than they 
d.) have just stopped coming in. Cer- 
tain records are being prematurely 
worn out. To remedy these conditions, 
the music room is now heinj? run on 
a new basis. 

Instead of selections beinu 
played at the request of the lis- 
teners a weekly program will be 
made out to be followed strictly. 
From :i:00 o'clock until 4:30 there 
will be allowed a period for in- 
dividual choices. All other mu.-dc 
room, hours will be devoted to 
the program made out in advance. 
This will be posted outside. Then 
those who want to hear some- 
thing played will be able to at- 
tend when they see it announced 
on the bulletin. Suggestions will 
he accepted for the program. 
In order that listeners who want to 
g«t a unified outlook OB certain as- 
pects of music can do so, the program 
will he made up with an orderly con- 
text. For example, ■ French program, 
or a Beethoven program might be se1 
up for a few days or a week. In th» 
respect the new polky will be a great 
help to the members of the music 
classes. Those not too familiar with 
music and desirous of knowing more 
will better be able to do so. 

Between long selections, there will 
be a ten minute intermission, to al- 
low f«,r a smoke outside, or perhaps 

a rest, or a bit of discussion. Later 
on it may be possible for some de- 
scription of the pieces played to be 
given, somewhat after the fashion of 
Morton Blender, of Boston's VVCOP. 
The (irst of the new record. ngs 
have arrived. A new licet ho% en 
Fifth is here, and it sounds very 
well. A Schubert I nlinished Sym- 
phony was played Monday for the 
first time. With the combination 
of new records and new machine 
it i- really something to hear. 
The new release of the Schubert 
Seventh Symphony has lived up 
to all expectations. And at last, 
at long last, we have a new 
Beethoven Quartet, the ( Sharp 
Minor. II will certainly be a 
pleasure to hear these new selec- 
tions. In a week or two there will 
arrive the rest of the thirty or
